Celebrity Jersey Cards #684 Sarah Nurse & Elaine Chuli

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. I continue marching alphabetically through all of the Major League Baseball teams with two great women hockey players.

Born in Ontario, Sarah Nurse comes from an athletic family. Her uncle Donovan McNabb was an NFL QB, another uncle Richard Nurse was a WR in the CFL, her cousin Darnell Nurse plays for the NHL Edmonton Oilers and her other cousin Kia Nurse plays for the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks. Nurse starred at the University of Wisconsin before going pro. In 2020, Mattel released a Barbie doll based on Nurse. Nurse currently plays for Toronto of the PWHL ( (Professional Women's Hockey League). Nurse tossed a ceremonial pitch for the Toronto Blue Jays to earn her Celebrity Jersey Card. 

Currently a goalie with Montreal of the PWHL, Elaine Chuli was born in Ontario. After starring at the University o Connecticut, Chuli has played in pro leagues in North America and abroad. She is the all-time leader in saves for both the Hockey East Conference and the UConn program. For her Celebrity Jersey Card, Chuli wore an old school Blue Jays jersey.
