Celebrity Jersey Cards #235 Stan Lee & William Shatner

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.  Coming off of Wizard World, I am featuring two major regular celebrity guests.

Stan Lee is an icon.  Born in New York, Lee is the patriarch of the comic book and superhero world.  Does his connection to the Giants go back to their days in New York?  I cannot nitpick with this legend.  Plus, his Celebrity Jersey Card goes way back to the pre-Topps cards!
Canadian born actor William Shatner made a name for himself in Hollywood (via "space: the final frontier").  He is hugely popular at these cons.  Not being a fan of the Star Trek franchise, I have never met Shatner.  I do like the fact that I got to go to early Topps for his Celebrity Jersey Card.  That's not horrible pitching form either!
