We’re prepping The Art Issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly and it’s weeks like this where, sadly, we learn the obvious once again — that there’s just not enough room on the printed page. When you talk art with legendary sports artist Dick Perez, there’s just too much good stuff to go around.
In a forthcoming issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at art-driven cards and we’d like to kick start our creative process with some of your thoughts. If you have a moment this weekend, please feel free to comment here with your favorite art sets, sports artists and — most importantly — why you’re a fan.
A collector might best remember Dick Perez from his Diamond Kings cards made by Donruss in the 1980s — and that’s what we recently hooked up with him to discuss for the next issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly dedicated solely to the decade where the hobby exploded into the mainstream and started to become what it is today.
