Christie Brinkley

Christie Brinkley being added to the ongoing collection of 1991 Score baseball inspired  "Dream Girl" cards was not an if, but when.  Christie, like a majority of the women in the Dream Girl set, gained notoriety by becoming a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl.  In fact, Christie is the only model to appear on 3 consecutive covers, starting in 1979.  In the '80s S.I. Swimsuit Issue cover girls were the apex of what you'd consider a "Dream Girl', to me anyways.

Of course Christie also permeated the fantasy girl realm for some many of us as  "The girl in the red Ferrari" in National Lampoon's Vacation.  Beverly D'Angelo and Christie Brinkley??  Clark, you lucky dog.
