Celeb Jersey Cards #52 A.J. Pierzynski & David Arquette

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities.

In wrestling terms, today I am throwing a swerve.  This edition of Celebrity Jersey Cards features non-wrestlers getting a wrestling card.  Yes, I know there is no jersey present, but there are title belts.  Title belts rock!
Technically, A.J. Pierzynski is a baseball player, but he has a lot of wrestling in him.  His tag team partner is Dale Torborg, former baseball player and former wrestler.  Torborg is a coach and the son of former player Jeff Torborg (a member of the Backup Catcher Hall of Fame).  A little while back, they made an "impact" on Total Nonstop Action wrestling.  Some TNA wrestlers presented the pair with a real belt and that landed them on a Celebrity Jersey Card (wrestling belt edition
In one of the most controversial moves in the history of wrestling, actor David Arquette won the WCW Heavyweight title several years ago.  Arquette's title reign was short, but his legacy will live forever.  Now, he has been immortalized on a card of his own.

The TNA set you used there is actually an autograph project of mine. While I never expect to fully complete it, I already have many of the biggies including Sting, Jarrett, Angle, Dixie, AJ Styles, and most of the Knockouts among others. It's the easiest TNA set to get signed as they're done with a matte finish instead of gloss.
