1955 Roberto Clemente Custom Baseball Card
A Guest Artist Original
I did a series of twenty cards this year which complimented Topps' Project 2020 series. With each of my cards, I incorporated illustrations and photographs, but also kept close to the format of the original card. With this piece, I went a little more abstract with Clemente. Half of his face is illustrated, while the other is a photograph. I also replaced the photograph from the original card, to one of him swinging and added a bit more color in honor of his Puerto Rican roots. A lot of art from Puerto Rico shows color and I wanted to show that in this piece.

About Matthew Lee Rosen's Guest Artist Shops
Topps Project 2020 has inspired a growing number of hobbyists to create their own card art. To provide them with support, I'm inviting artists to build their own guest shop! I lend my expertise to mentor and guide them along the way... my ultimate vision is to curate a mini-marketplace for card-inspired artwork.
Here's what you'll receive with this order
- An original artwork by my guest artist.
- Your purchase will be shipped directly from the guest artist's studio.
- If your order contains multiple items from different artists, the items will ship separately.
