Celebrity Jersey Cards #199 Jimmy Buffett & Jimmy Buffett

This is a regular feature which attempts to combine my life long passion for baseball cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  Today I am celebrating Jimmy Buffett, then and now.

Jimmy Buffett was born in Mississippi and raised in Alabama.  Both states are without a major pro sports team.  Buffett's laid back music works well in a city like New Orleans.  I'll say his #22 is for former defensive back Fred Thomas, although I am probably way off.  In a Celebrity Jersey Card time warp, this card was released before the Saints were even in existence.  My cards, my rules.
 A much younger Jimmy Buffett is scene wearing a Miami Dolphins jersey on this alternative Celebrity Jersey Card.  This early wearing of a #22 jersey indicated that the #22 might be a personal thing for Buffett.  Still, I will recall Mercury Morris, a great #22 from that era.
