Celebrity Jersey Cards #222 Melissa Etheridge & Steven Tyler

Athletes get trading cards.  Why not celebrities?  At least celebrities wearing athletic jerseys should get cards.  I am doing my best to create cards for jersey-clad celebs.  It is Memorial Day weekend, and that means summer is here and we are celebrating with music and baseball.

Melissa Etheridge was born in Kansas, but moved to Boston for her college years at the Berklee School of Music.  Neither of those facts offers a clue as to any connection with the Tampa Rays.  Also, nothing explains how her Celebrity Jersey Card features the Rays in 1986, years before they were in existence.  Such is life in Johngy land!
Steve Tyler was born and raised in New York.  He threw out the first pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals to earn his Celebrity Jersey Card.  Knowing Tyler's vocal range, I bet it was a perfect pitch.  I just wonder if he scatted a bit on the mound.  Johngy loves a good scat.
