Celebrity Jersey Cards #111 Urijah Faber & Manny Pacquiao

This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities.  Today, for no real reason, I am featuring tough guys.

Born and raised in California, Urijah Faber has remained true to his California roots.  In MMA competition, Faber is 26-6, having just recently lost.  Despite the fact that he is only 5'6" and 135 pounds, I think the A's could use his punch (pun intended).  I just hope he likes his Celebrity Jersey Card.

Born in the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao has the same toughness and size as Faber.  Pacquiao is 54-4-2 in his great career.  Pacquiao appears in a Padres uniform on his Celebrity Jersey Card, but like Faber, it is still a tough guy in a California baseball team uniform.  Also like Faber, I really hope Pacquiao is satisfied with his card.  I am a writer, not a fighter.
