This is a regular series which attempts to combine my life long passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities. As we head into the final week of the season, my football predictions are on the decline, but the Seahawks are on the rise. They have been the hottest team over the last few weeks.
The Seattle Seahawks have a pre-game ritual where a celebrity dons the #12 jersey and raises the #12 flag in honor of the Seattle fans (aka the 12th man). I believe there has been only one member of the Seahawks to actually wear #12 and that is former quarterback Sam Adkins. Adkins was with the Seahawks from 1977 (their second year) through 1981. Unfortunately, he was stuck behind Jim Zorn and Steve Myer and appeared in only 11 games, throwing 2 touchdown passes. Adkins never had a regular issued football card, so his Celebrity Jersey Card could also be a Card That Never Was.
