Celebrity Jersey Cards #591 Chris Algieri & Jordan Poole

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today, the New York Yankees end our season-long alphabetical journey through all Major League Baseball teams.

Boxer Chris Algieri was born in New York and earned the nickname "The Fighting Collegian" early in his career. He is 25-4 in his career and once held the WBO Junior Welterweight title in 2014. Algieri earned a Celebrity Jersey Card while tossing a pitch for the San Francisco Giants. Two more strikes and he would have had a punch out!

Wisconsin native Jordan Poole starred at Michigan before the Golden State Warriors selected him with the 28th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Poole has been a solid player with the Warriors, averaging 9.4 points per game over his three seasons. Poole turned his talents to the diamond and tossed a first pitch for the Giants to earn his Celebrity Jersey Card.
