Celebrity Jersey Cards #654 Brandon McManus & Philipp Grubauer

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

Brandon McManus was born in Philadelphia, PA and went to Temple. The kicker went undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft. After signing and being released by the New Orleans Saints and New York Giants, McManus was signed by the Denver Broncos, where he kicked for nine seasons, including the Super Bowl champion team of 2015. McManus signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the 2023 season. Before leaving the Mile High city, McManus took a turn in the batting casges to merit his Celebrity Jersey Card.

Born in Germany, Philipp Grubauer is enjoying an 11 year career as a goalie. He started with the Washington Capitals, played a couple seasons with the Colorado Avalanche and is currently with the Seattle Kraken. It was during his time with the Avs that he took BP with the Colorado Rockies to earn his Celebrity jersey Card. Grubauer showed great form, but he is still better at stopping scoring.
