Celebrity Jersey Cards #326 Benicio Del Toro & Carlos Santana

This is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports   We continue working our way alphabetically through the MLB teams.jerseys.

Born in Puerto Rico, Benicio Del Toro rose to fame in Hollywood.  Most notably, he won an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for his portrayal of Javier Rodríguez in the 2000 film Traffic.  It was his performance in The Fan that earned him his Celebrity Jersey Card though.
 Legendary musician Carlos Santana was born in San Francisco, CA.  He stayed true to his heritage and his hometown when he wore the Gigantes jersey and earned a spot on a Celebrity Jersey Card.  Ordinarily, I'd subtract points for that sort of non-baseball hat, but it works for Santana.  I also resisted the urge to say that he is so smooth.
