Celebrity Jersey Cards #266 Wayne Gretzky & Bret Hart

This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  Today, we continue working our way alphabetically through Major League Baseball.

Wayne Gretzky is one of the all-time great athletes coming from Canada.  The Great One owns too many hockey records to list.  He rose to superstardom with the Edmonton Oilers, but for his Celebrity Jersey Card he repped his home country Blue Jays, seeing as their is no MLB team in Edmonton.  Gretzky's son Trevor is currently in the Los Angeles Angels' organization..
Like Gretzky, Bret Hart is considered a Canadian treasure.  Hart is probably the most accomplished pro wrestler from Canada.  He certainly is one of the proudest Canadian wrestlers.  For his Celebrity Jersey Card, I listed him as a Designated Hitter, which seemed appropriate for "The Hitman."
