Celebrity Jersey Cards #268 Vanilla Ice & Helio Castroneves

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

Robert Van Winkle was born in Dallas, Texas.  He rose to fame as rapper Vanilla Ice.  For his Celebrity Jersey Card, the Ice Man appears in the Brewers dugout sporting #31 (for Dave Bush?).  Does anyone know who is #35 next to him or the photo-bomber behind them?
Hélio Castroneves is a Brazilian auto racing driver.  When he threw out the first pitch for the Brewers, his look reminded me of the mid-70's windbreaker-type look.  The dark versus light also makes for an interesting Celebrity Jersey Card.
