Celebrity Jersey Cards #339 Richard Petty & Bobby Labonte

This is a weekly series in which I attempt to combine my lifelong passion for sports trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities  Today, we continue working our way alphabetically through Major League Baseball.

Richard Petty has been around cars all of his life.  He's a true legend and larger than life.  I have no idea how the #43 relates, but I'll say it is for Jack Billingham.  Petty loses points for wearing a jersey over a regular shirt, but he gains points for that hat.  It all makles for an interesting Celebrity Jersey Card.

Not quite on Petty's level, Bobby Labonte is also a legend in auto racing.  He's only been racing some sort of cars for about 47 years though.  A native of Texas, I am assuming his Celebrity Jersey Card photo comes from some promotional event at some race in Cincinnati.
