Celebrity Jersey Cards #174 Alyssa Milano & Ally Raisman

This is a regular series which attempts to merge my lifelong obsession with baseball cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  I continue my theme of ousted teams from the NHL playoffs.

I have whined several times about Alyssa Milano and her recognized fandom.  I have no doubt she sports fan, but the accolades she gets for being such irritate me (okay, maybe I am just jealous).  For such a rabid sports fan, I had to search long and hard (I need a life) to find any picture of her in a sports jersey of any sort.  I found one of he in a Dodgers jersey, but she was young.  Again, I find one of her as a youngster.  I don't know the Pittsburgh connection.  What really puts me over the top about all of this is that I really like Milano.  She is a former child actress who seems to have avoided a downfall.  Of course, her beauty also softens my irritation.  Anyway, she gets some extra credit for the cool hat with her jersey on the Celebrity Jersey Card.
Ally Raisman was captain of the gold medal-winning US women's gymnastics team at the 2012 Olympics.  She also won a gold and bronze individually, along with other medals at various other events.  The native of the Boston, MA area stuck to her roots with her Boston Bruins jersey.  Gold medals on a Celebrity Jersey Card are always cool.
