This is a regular series, in which I attempt to combine my lifelong passion for sports cards with my interest in celebrities. Since hockey will be back soon, I am featuring two Bears in Hawks jerseys to celebrate the return of hockey. Hey, they weren't doing anything anyway, since they didn't even make the playoffs!
Kellen Davis is a native of Michigan, but his years with the Bears lead him to the Hawks jersey. I wonder if there is a picture of him wearing a Red Wings sweater? Anyway, despite the critics, Davis has had a pretty good career for a 7th round draft pick. He will never be a Hall of Famer, but if the Bears offense ever gets help, Davis could be a solid second tight end. The #87 on his Celebrity Jersey Card matches his Bears number. I don't believe there has ever been an #87 on the Hawks.
Matt Forte has been a steady force on the Bears offense. Despite hitting his usual stats, 2012 seemed to be a bit of a down year for Forte. With a new Bears coach and a push for a better offense, I am expecting a big season for Forte. The #22 he is wearing on his Celebrity Jersey Card is obviously his Bears number and not an homage to Grant Mulvey (a very good player of my youth).
