Fungo Baseball Cards
I have always been fascinated with baseball cards. Whether I was collecting them, trading them, clothespinning them to my bike spokes, or ogling over the colourful designs and colourful players, I was hooked. Each year had a distinct look, immortalizing the style of the era. I grew up drawing my favourite players of the eighties... and, to this day, those are still the players that bring me the fondest memories... perhaps it was because it was when I fell in love with the game, perhaps it was the aesthetic of the uniforms, the killer moustaches, and the hard-nose style of play... but, it's what I grew up with. It's what I love. So, naturally, after all of these years, I find myself right back where I started... drawing my favourite players... position by position... curating personal all star lineups, year by year... starting with 1984, and trying to roll out a new set each year. Baseball cards are back!
