Celebrity Jersey Cards #665 Mariska Hargitay & The Big Show

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. Today, I'm in a New York State of Mind.

Born in California, Mariska Hargitay is the daughter of bodybuilder and actor Mickey Hargitay and actress Jayne Mansfield. The actress has won a Golden Globe Award, two People's Choice Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award. She might be best known for her role on television's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Hargitay speaks five languages. For her Celebrity Jersey Card, Hargitay went cross-country from her birthplace to rep the New York Giants.

Born in South Carolina, Paul Wight played college basketball before finding great success in the wrestling ring as The Giant, The Big Show and finally Paul Wight. One of the most athletic big men, TBS is a multi-time champ in World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment. He now works for All Elite Wrestling, although his in-ring career is nearing its end. For his Celebrity Jersey Card, The Big Show donned a New York Jets No. 12 jersey, most notably worn by Hall of Famer Joe Namath. Imagine trying to sack this guy.
