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.
Singer Christina Aguilera was born in Staten Island, NY. She gained a lot of fame from her stint on tv's The Mickey Mouse Club. She released her debut album in 1999 and has been on the rise ever since. She sang the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Pirates and earned her Celebrity Jersey Card. I assume her #1 is just for her, as the last Pirate to wear it was in 1947 and only three Pirates ever have worn it. It does work well for Ms. Aguilera!
