Original baseball card art

In 1975, Fleer filed a lawsuit against Topps for monopolization. Five years later, a judge ruled against Topps' exclusivity. So, in 1981 two new brands entered the market: Fleer and Donruss. Facing competition for the first time, Topps began to brand themselves as "The Real One," and used the new slogan on their packaging for several years. I used cards from the 1981-84 sets featuring the World Series champions of each year: Dodgers, Cardinals, Orioles, and Tigers.

    More about my 34" diamond baseball card artworks

    • 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.
