Celebrity Jersey Cards #545 Jakob Dylan & John Popper

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.

Born in New York, Bob Dylan's son Jakob has carved out a nice career as a musician. The Wallflowers enjoyed some success a little while back, with "One Headlight" listed at number 58 on Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Pop Songs" Dylan has performed as a solo artist, as well as on and off with the Wallflowers over the years. He and his wife have four sons. One must wonder if he is grooming his own band. Dylan no doubt had a perfect pitch when throwing out the ceremonial ball for the Washington Nationals.

Ohio born, fellow musician John Popper is probably best known as the front man for Blues Traveler. Popper originally wanted to be a comedian, but found his niche performing with several garage bands which ultimately morphed into Blues Traveler. Popper, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 1999, has continued performing with Blues Traveler and on his own. He sang the National Anthem for the Nationals and added a Celebrity Jersey Card to his resume.
