Celebrity Jersey Cards #120 Joan Jett & Shawn Cassidy

This is a regular series which attempts to combines my lifelong passion for sports trading cards with my interest in celebrities.  Today I am featuring a New York Jets music combo, however unlikely the pairing is.

Joan Jett is rocking (literally) a Joe Namath jersey.  Jett is a rock legend and should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Maybe some of Joe Willie's luck will rub off on her and she will get inducted soon.  Until then, I think she might be in the Celebrity Jersey Card Hall of Fame.

On the other side of the musical spectrum is Shaun Cassidy.  Cassidy will never be called a music legend, but he has carved out a solid career.  Maybe he is a Richard Todd, to Jett's Namath.  Cassidy is sporting the #1 and my research (although far from complete) shows Mike Nugent as the best #1 for the Jets.  This is another of the Celebrity Jersey Cards which really fits into the feel and look of the set design.
