Celebrity Jersey Cards #81 Mick Jagger & Stephen Stills

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs.

Mick Jagger is a first ballot unanimous Hall of Famer.  His musical career spans 40+ years.  During the 'Tattoo You' tour, he wore the Eagles #21 jersey for several concerts.  Why #21?  I don't know why, but it belonged to John Sciarra.  It seems an odd combination.  I see Jagger more as a Roman Gabriel, but it is his choice and it is good enough to get him on a Celebrity Jersey Card, but I still say his position would be quarterback.

I am not a huge fan of Stephen Stills, but he is also a Hall of Fame musician.  If I may borrow  feature from 30-Year Old Cardboard, did you know that Stills tried out for the Monkees, but couldn't take the part due to a record contract.  He then recommended his friend, Peter Tork.  I am not sure of the significance of his #22.  Clarence R. Scott would be the most famous #22 for the Browns, but I can't believe that is the reason Stills is wearing it.  Actually Stills owns several Browns jerseys, bearing several numbers.  Only one was needed, however, for Stills to merit a Celebrity Jersey Card.

I see Jagger as a halftime performer. He doesn't look like he'd last three seconds in a game. Even when he was young.

I agree with you completely. His only chance would be quick throws, avoiding any contact!
