Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today, I continue working my way alphabetically through all MLB teams.
After an outstanding career at the University of Houston, Clyde Drexler was selected by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 14th pick in the 1983 NBA draft. "The Glyde" spent 11.5 seasons with the Trail Blazers, before playing 3.5 years with the Houston Rockets to end his Hall of Fame career. He won one NBA championship (when Michael Jordan was temporarily retired, I must add). Drexler earned his Celebrity Jersey Card tossing the first pitch for the Houston Astros. I wonder if he glided it.
