Celeb Jersey Cards #63 Mark Wahlberg & Kevin Bacon

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs.  The season is about 2/3 over and the two teams leading their leagues are the Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox.

When we last saw Boston area native Mark Wahlberg, he was sporting a Philadelphia Eagles jersey for his role as Vince Papale in Invincible.  Today, Wahlberg is showing his true colors while tossing out the first pitch at Fenway.  While I was a big fan of Papale, this is a much more fitting Celebrity Jersey Card for Wahlberg.
One degree of separation away from Mark Wahlberg is Kevin Bacon.  They are connected by Jennifer Aniston, who starred with Wahlberg in Rock Star and with Bacon in Picture Perfect.   Bacon is a native Philadelphian and he donned the Phillies jersey when he performed the National Anthem with his brothers.
