Celebrity Jersey Cards #290 Mary Tyler Moore & John Ashton

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.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Mary Tyler Moore became connected to Minneapolis from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," which was set there.  There is even a statue of her in her iconic hat-tossing pose in downtown Minneapolis.  I love that her pose is also captured on her Celebrity Jersey Card!  I am assuming her #1 jersey is just respect for her and not for any Twins player.
In Little Big League, John Ashton plays the manager of the Twins.  A lot of managers have catching backgrounds and that is where I listed him on his Celebrity Jersey Card.  I could have given him a Manager card, since Topps had them in 1974, but then I would have fretted over the floating coaches heads.  Luke Edwards also appears on his card.
