Celeb Rookie Cards #28 Gary Dell'Abate & Lex Luger

They aren't perfect, but they are my attempt at the world of virtual cards. They are the Celebrity Rookie Cards. These cards feature celebrities of all sorts wearing jerseys of all sports using the design which would typically be their rookie card.

Like him or not, Howard Stern is a radio (all media?) legend.  Louie listened before I did and he always said that Gary Dell'Abate (Stern's long-time producer) was 'the man'.  Gary might be overlooked for his part in the show, but maybe his new book (They Call Me Baba Booey) might open some eyes.
Gary wishes something else was overlooked.  If anyone saw Gary's horrible first pitch at a Mets game, you would know what I mean.  The pitch has taken on epic proportions, including hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.  The good news is that the pitch did land Gary on a Celebrity Rookie Card.
Larry Pfohl played for the Montreal Alouettes and then spent a season on the Injured Reserve list for the Green Bay Packers.  He is listed on the official all-time roster in the Packers Hall of Fame.  Pfohl gained real fame in the wrestling ring under the name Lex Luger, the Total Package.
Luger enjoyed a lot of success in the ring, but experienced some problems outside of wrestling.  Luger is a born-again Christian and seems to have put his substance problems and health issues behind him.  He has lost a lot of his size, but he still looks pretty solid in that Carolina Panthers jersey.  The number doesn't match his pro position, but Celebrity Rookie Cards don't live by those standards.

Very nice cards! I did a Mets baseball card of Gary in the style of the 1980's Topps series and posted it on the Photoshop thread at Stern Fan Network. If you'd like a copy, email me at
