Fergie and Josh Duhamel … on Baseball Cards?

Updated on October 30, 2012

Black Eyed Peas vocalist (turned solo singer) Fergie and her Emmy Award winning actor beau Josh Duhamel have made a lot of headlines in the last few months. Fergie alone has been in the limelight quite a bit with a Seventeen magazine cover, her recent music videos, and her record-setting record. And Duhamel isn't exactly slacking for his part of making some solo attention with his extensive list of TV credits and his recent appearance on Ellen. But, of course, it's the news that the two have been making as a high-profile couple that has kept people interested in Fergie and Josh.


If you're not familiar with the back story, the couple has been dating for a couple of years now and they've gained the attention of the media despite their interest in keeping things low-key and out of the spotlight. There have been rumors of breakups and news of engagements, both of which have been untrue. The couple has cleared up some of the questions about themselves with relationship secret-sharing, including news that Josh's naughty dreams about Fergie are what drew the two together in the first place. But for the most part, these two stay quiet about what's going on in their private world.


Still, this quiet doesn't keep them from creeping into the headlines. However, some of the latest news has nothing to do with their exploits as a couple. Instead, it has to do with a quiet mention of their participation in a sales gimmick that has very little to do with being a celebrity couple and a lot to do with ... baseball? Yep, that's right. Both Fergie and Josh have lent their John Hancocks to some celebrity cards that are part of this season's baseball trading card decks put out by Upper Deck.


Upper Deck, the famous trading card company, has recently put out their 2007 Upper Deck Spectrum Baseball Cards Hobby Box. This is a one hundred card base set with some added stuff thrown in to the mix, not the least of which are celebrity cards autographed by a number of famous people. Well, actually, most of them aren't really so famous. Or at least they aren't famous right now. Lots of people who've got their fingers in this game are stars that were popular ages ago who are trying to get back in the limelight (Greg Brady comes to mind as an example.)


But, despite the fact that they don't have any problems making new headlines on a regular basis as solo celebrities and as a celebrity couple, Fergie and Josh Duhamel both have their signatures on cards in these boxes. Perhaps they can bring a new generation of fans to the old art of collecting baseball trading cards?
