This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities. We continue working our way alphabetically through Major League Baseball.
Joe Garagiola often jokes that he was not even the best major league catcher on his block, because he grew up with Yogi Berra.

Garagiola later found more fame on the talk show circuit. iIn 2013, he retired from broadcasting with the Arizona Diamondbacks, but not before earning one of our oldest Celebrity Jersey Cards!
