This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities. I am continuing my theme of featuring celebs wearing jerseys of whoever is playing the Chicago Bears.
Jay Buhner was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates, but made his Major League Baseball debut with the New York Yankees. He spent 14.5 seasons of his 15 year carer with the Seattle Mariners. His trade from the Yankees for Ken Phelps was the object of a Frank Costanza tirade on tv's Seinfeld. On his Celebrity Jersey Card, Buhner is wearing the #12 for the 12th Man.
