Celebrity Jersey Cards #664 Pam Tillis & Gerald Green

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today I feature the old (Houston Oilers) and the new (Tennessee Titans).

The daughter of Mel Tillis, Pam Tillis went on to carve her own successful music career. Initially releasing pop music albums, Tillis found more success when she switched to country music. Instead of repping any of her home state Florida teams, Tillis wore a Titans jersey for her first Celebrity Jersey Card. 

Born in Houston, Gerald Green went straight from high school to the NBA, after the Boston Celtics drafted him in the first round of the 2005 NBA draft. Green played for eight NBA teams and several others overseas and in other leagues. Although he had a long playing career, he fell a bit short as a first rounder. Green joined the Houston Rockets as a coach after his playing career ended. Green also shares a birthday with me, although he is much younger. For his Celebrity Jersey card, Green shows some hometown love with an old school Earl Campbell Oilers jersey.
