This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities. Today, we continue working our way alphabetically through Major League Baseball.
Comedian and actor Richard Marin was born in Los Angeles, California. Marin's nickname "Cheech" is short for "chicharron", a fried pork skin that is a popular snack in Mexican cuisine and a favorite of pot smokers with the munchies. Additionally, it works well with "Chong" in the comedic duo's name. Cheech went old school with the rainbow jersey for his Celebrity Jersey Card.
