Clint Hurdle burst onto the scene as a Sports Illustrated cover boy phenom with the Kansas City Royals. While he never lived up to the superstar predictions, he did carve out a solid major league career. In his managerial career, he has been enjoying success with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He even donned the Penguins jersey in a sign of mutual love for his adopted city. His Celebrity Jersey Card would fit in well with the Topps set of that year.
