Celebrity Jersey Cards #675

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. Today I salute the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Born in Manhattan, New York, Henry Winkler rose to great fame as Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli.on tv's Happy Days. Prior to that, he co-starred with Sylvester Stallone in Lords of Flatbush, one of my favorite movies and a very underrated one. Since then, Winkler has gone onto huge success behind the camera, too. It is often stated, but it is so true, Winkler is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He has a great story about meeting Patrick Mahomes (look it up). He gets his Celebrity Jersey Card while wearing #15, most notably worn by Mahomes.

Kori Stonestreet is a softball player for Pittsburg State University, having transferred from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. The infielder is from Overland Park, Kansas, but I don't think she is related to Eric Stonestreet, an actor from the same area. Eric had a Celebrity Jersey Card repping the Royals, but Kori gets hers repping the champion Chiefs.
