Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today, I continue working my way alphabetically through all MLB teams.
Brooklyn, New York native Louis Gossett Jr. has had a legendary acting career spanning more than 60 years. He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and an Emmy Award, among his other many honors. Gossett was a great choice to portray baseball Hall of Famer Satchel Paige in a biography on his life. While Paige got a Topps 1953 card, Gossett now has a Celebrity Jersey Card.
