A Guest Artist Original
A baseball card mirror honoring the return of Fleer baseball cards in 1981.
As of 2020, 37 Hall of Fame players are in this set and all of them are featured here on this frame. Sadly, three members have passed away this year, Joe Morgan, Tom Seaver and Phil Niekro.
The 1981 Fleer set is super simple in design and most of the colorful pictures are humble portraits.
Constructed in Fort Collins, Colorado
Each 28" diameter frame is made from 3/4" thick Baltic birch plywood (stained and lacquered), and consists of approximately 60 genuine baseball cards.
In an effort to keep the cards "cleanable", I have applied 4 coats of lacquer, while retaining their original sheen. The mirror itself is 11 1/2" diameter and 1/8" thick. It ships ready to hang, with a metal keyhole hanger in the back.
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.
