This is a regular series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. Done with all of the MLB teams and awaiting the winner of the World Series, here are a couple baseball-hockey transitions.
Bill Russell played 18 seasons for the Los Angeles Dodgers, mostly at shortstop. The 3x All-Star hit .263 with 1,926 hits in his career. Later, he managed the Dodgers for 2+ seasons, going 173-149. He is still a popular figure in Los Angeles, as proof by his appearance at a LA Kings game, along with teammate Steve Yeager. While that night gave Russell a Celebrity Jersey Card, I think he should have worn the old school royal blue and gold Kings jersey.
