Celeb Jersey Cards #84 Tony LaRussa & Troy Tulowitzki

This is a regular series which attempts to combine my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities.  Today, as the Bears face domination and playoff elimination tomorrow, I am presenting cards representing two teams who are already eliminated.  Misery loves company.

The St. Louis Cardinals won the 2011 World Series under the leadership of Tony LaRussa.  When LaRussa appeared at a Rams game, he wore a Sam Bradford #8 jersey, instead of his usual #10.  LaRussa's magic did not transfer to the Rams who enter today's game with a record of 2-12.

In six seasons, Troy Tulowitzki has established himself as one of the top shortstops in the major leagues.  His career average is .294 and has won Gold Gloves in 2010 and 2011.  He also has hit for the cycle and turned the 13th unassisted triple play in mlb history.  He is a fan of the Dolphins and unlike LaRussa, he wore his regular #2 for his Celebrity Jersey Card.  Unfortunately, the Dolphins are 5-9 and have recently fired their coach.  Maybe Tulo will apply to fill that vacancy.
