Celebrity Jersey Cards #635 Al Yankovic & Tech N9ne

This is a regular series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. Once again, we are working our way alphabetically through all of the Major League Baseball teams.

Born in California, "Weird" Al Yankovic rose to stardom when his parody songs were played on the Dr. Demento radio show. Extremely talented, Yankovic's humor often overshadows his actual musical ability. The guy has real music skills. His Celebrity Jersey Card comes from his appearance at a Big Slick Celebrity Classic charity game.
A native of Kansas City, MO, Aaron Dontez Yates is better known as rapper, singer, songwriter Tech N9ne. His stage name originated from his fast-rhyming chopper style, which is reminiscent of a TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun. Tech N9ne's Celebrity Jersey Card comes from his appearance in the Big Slick Celebrity Classic charity game. Looking at the swing, it appears that he might be a bit ahead of the pitch or maybe he just connected on the pitch. I guess it depends which way the ball is headed.
