Jack White & Eddie Vedder Get On Baseball Cards


Very rarely (if ever!) do music souvenir collectors and sports cards collectors meet in one spot, but the white-vedder-cardnews that a number of high-profile artists will be featured on baseball cards, should bring the parties together.

Available February 6 through the 2015 Topps Series 1 collection of Major League Baseball (MLB) cards, will be a 15-card set of ceremonial first pitch tossers. Among those to be immortalized on cardboard will be Jack White (in a Detroit Tigers jersey), Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder (in a Chicago Cubs t-shirt and cap), along with Biz Markie repping the Oakland Athletics and Tom Morello the Cubs, plus Macklemore showing support for the Seattle Mariners. You can read the full list below.

Oh yeah, you’ll also find photographic evidence of one of the worst celebrity first pitch attempts of all-time: 50 Cent for the New York Mets. He proved on this occasion that he can spit a rhyme better than hurling a ball.

For film fans out there, Jeff “The Dude” Bridges is documented having a great time while throwing ahead of a Los Angeles Dodgers game.

With regards to White, this card unveiling couldn’t have come at a better time, as recently he was criticized for abandoning his hometown of Detroit.
