Original baseball card art

In just his 5th career start on a gray May afternoon (5.6.1998), Kerry Wood tied Roger Clemens' record for strikeouts in a 9-inning game by punching out 20 Astros in a 1-hit shutout. It was the greatest Cubs pitching performance I've ever seen. I've used Kerry's 1999 Topps Stadium Club Chrome, which reflects and changes color. Then, I went monochrome Cubbie blue with spot gloss and a touch of holographic paint... so this whole piece reflects light and changes on your viewing angle.

More about my 34" diamond baseball card artworks

I was inspired by my childhood baseball card collection to create wall art that celebrates the pop culture icons of the sport and hobby. So, I've produced a series of diamond-shaped paintings, which incorporate the use of vintage cards... often done in tiled mosaics.

  • My paintings are done on plywood as homage to the game's wooden bats, and shaped like diamonds... a reference to the infield.
  • Each diamond is made from a 24" plywood square (1/2" thick), which measures 34" x 34" when hung on a wall.
  • Some of my artworks also incorporate the use of spray-painted plexiglass.
  • Each painting ships ready to hang, with hardware already installed.
  • A printed and signed description of the artwork will be attached to the back prior to shipping.
  • All pieces are original artwork by yours truly, Matthew Lee Rosen.
