Celeb Rookie Cards #26 Kevin Costner & Dennis Quaid

They aren't perfect, but they are my attempt at the world of virtual cards. They are the Celebrity Rookie Cards.

For today's Celebrity Rookie Cards feature, I went to the movies and to the minor leagues. I didn't go too crazy though, as both are pictured on legitimate team cards from existing (at the time at least) minor league teams.
Crash Davis, as portrayed by Kevin Costner, was an aging catcher for the Durham Bulls. Costner has worn several jerseys while playing several athletic figures in his various movies. Recently, we saw Costner as a member of the Detroit Tigers. Today's appearance with the Bulls makes him the first 2 time Celebrity Rookie Carder as well as being the first minor leaguer. I kept the card the same size as an actual Bulls card from that year.
Jimmy Morris was a high school baseball coach who made a promise to his students and eded up on the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Before appearing for the major league Rays, Morris made a stop in Orlanda, which is the basis for the Celebrity Rookie Card featuring Dennis Quaid who portrayed Morris in The Rookie. For whatever reason, the only pictures I found of Quaid in the movie were of him in The Orlando Rays uni.

These might be of interest to you. I made some custom hockey cards of Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and former NHL player Peter Zezel as the characters they portrayed in the film "Youngblood":
