Celeb Jersey Cards #82 Christopher Knight & Mike Lookinland

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs.  How about a Brady Bunch double team (no, sorry not Marcia and Jan).

Christopher Knight portrayed Peter Brady, the middle Brady son.  Knight regained some fame from reality tv, where he met and later starred with his wife (although they might be separated now).  I am unaware of any ties Knight has with Detroit.  I am assuming he was there doing promotion for one of his shows.  His ceremonial pitch was a solid effort and good enough for a Celebrity Jersey Card.

One of the most famous Brady Bunch episodes involved Bobby tricking Joe Namath into coming to visit him.  Mike Lookinland got to wear the full Jets uniform.  I had to use a screen cap, since pictures from this episode couldn't be found.  Cards from that era usually had simple headshots and rarely would you find any sort of action shot.  In the world of Celebrity Jersey Cards, those guidelines don't matter.
