Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today, is a Special Requests edition.
Making his first special request is Charles Alexander, a longtime reader of Global Traveler magazine, who added Johngy's Beat to his webstops. Self-described as a former Kiss Army General, Chuck requested Paul Stanley and I am happy to comply. I am a long time Kiss fan, although I never reached General status.
Born Stanley Eisen in Manhattan, NY, Stabnley has been performing for more than 50 years, most of them being with Kiss. Stanley donned Kobe Bryant's #24 Los Angeles Lakers jersey on stage to earn his Celebrity Jersey Card.
Faithful reader and supporter Brian has made previous suggestions and I am always happy to tto get answer his requests. This time, he sent a picture of Kelly Clarkson in a Boston Celtics jersey. It seemed fitting to pair it with Stanley in a rival Lakers jersey.
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Clarkson rose to fame as the winner of the first season on American Icon. Since then, she has sold more than 25 million albums and is still going strong. Clarkson performed in a Paul Pierce #34 Celtics jersey to earn her Celebrity Jersey Card.
