Celebrity Rookie Cards #20 Chris Jericho & Ron Howard

They aren't perfect, but they are my attempt at the world of virtual cards. They are the Celebrity Rookie Cards. If anyone else wants to get in on the fun, feel free to make your own and send it over.

First up today is Chris Jericho. Chris is an avid hockey fan and laced up the skates while wearing a New York Rangers jersey, much like his father did for 5+ seasons. Jericho is just his wrestling name. Irvine is his real last name and his father is Ted Irvine, who played 10 seasons in the NHL and had plenty of his own hockey cards.

Next up is Ron Howard, a true Hollywood legend. Steve of White Sox Cards sent over the picture and I created the 1957 Topps Celebrity Rookie Card. I put Howard in the outfield, based on his softball experience and also I thought I remember him playing outfield on an episode of Happy Days. When Howard debuted, pitcher Dick Donovan wore the #22 jersey. During the black jersey era (like Howard is sporting), outfielder Darrin Jackson would probably be the biggest name to claim #22.
