Celeb Jersey Cards #56 Vince Vaughn & Billy Crystal

This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities.  Today I pay homage to my beloved Blackhawks who won the Stanley Cup on this date in 2010.

Vince Vaughn grew up in Buffalo Grove, a suburb of Chicago, and has stayed loyal to his roots.  He can often be seen at Chicago sporting events.  Vaughn isn't just there to be seen; he's a real fan, too!  There are a bunch of pictures of Vaughn sporting various Chicago jerseys, but I think this worked best with the chosen card.
On the other end of the spectrum is Billy Crystal, a native New Yorker and a noted New York fan.  In City Slickers, Crystal sports a Mets cap.  In reality, he is more of a Yankees fan and has even batted once in a Spring Training game, which earned him his first Celebrity Jersey Card a while back.  Today's card comes from his role in Running Scared, a Chicago-based movie and one of my all-time favorites.
