This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities. Today, for no real reason, I am featuring tough guys.
Born and raised in California, Urijah Faber has remained true to his California roots. In MMA competition, Faber is 26-6, having just recently lost. Despite the fact that he is only 5'6" and 135 pounds, I think the A's could use his punch (pun intended). I just hope he likes his Celebrity Jersey Card.
Born in the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao has the same toughness and size as Faber. Pacquiao is 54-4-2 in his great career. Pacquiao appears in a Padres uniform on his Celebrity Jersey Card, but like Faber, it is still a tough guy in a California baseball team uniform. Also like Faber, I really hope Pacquiao is satisfied with his card. I am a writer, not a fighter.
