Celebrity Jersey Cards #626 The Miz & La Parka

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. With WrestleMania coming April 2-3, I feature some wrestlers.

Born in Parma, OH, Mike Mizanin rose to fame on The Real World, before segueing to wrestling. Since debuting in the WWE in 2004, "The Miz" has won numerous singles and tag team titles. Too often criticized, perhaps longevity is turning the tide for Fans. Mizanin is a hard-worker and a talented showman. He donned a Cavaliers jersey for his Celebrity Jersey Card. The #40 has been worn by sveral players for short stints, with James Edwards being the best perhaps.
A native of Mexico, Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza was a professional wrestler, who died from injuries sustained in the ring. Better known as LaParka, he won several titles in  Mexico, although he wrestled in the United States often. LaParka put the Phoenix Gorilla in a backbreaker at a Phoenix Suns game to earn his Celebrity Jersey Card. The #17 he wore was most notably worn my P.J. Tucker for several years.
