Celebrity Jersey Cards #151 Tony LaRussa & Daisuke Matsuzaka

This is a regular feature which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for sports trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  Today I am mixing baseball and hockey.

Tony LaRussa played parts of six seasons in the majors, including one game with the Chicago Cubs.  His managerial career was much better.  Three MLB titles and six League titles pretty much puts him in the Hall of Fame.  LaRussa obviously wore his usual #10 when the St. Louis Blues honored him.  I love a World Series trophy on a hockey Celebrity Jersey Card.  With LaRussa, anything is possible.  Why did the White Sox let him go anyway?
Speaking of trophies, Daisuke Matsuzaka earned a World Series ring with the 2008 Boston Red Sox.  He went 18-3 that year (too bad Cliff Lee went 22-3).  The Boston Bruins honored Dice K and spread Beantown sports love across the sports.
