Celebirty Jersey Cards #190 Jimmy Kimmel & Regis Philbin

This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for baseball cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  Today I am featuring the Mets represented by two talk show icons.

Born in Brooklyn, NY, Jimmy Kimmel rose to fame on Win Ben Stein's Money and The Man Show.  Eventually, Kimmel starred in his own show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.  Surrounded by his family, Kimmel seems to be a loyal guy.  This is also evident in his Mets love, as seen on his Celebrity Jersey Card.
Yesteryear's Jimmy Kimmel was Regis Philbin, although he is still very active today.  Philbin was born in the Bronx, NY and he remains true to his NY roots, as seen on this Celebrity Jersey Card.  I find it fitting that Philbin, who gave away so much green on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, is wearing a green Mets jersey.
