Default Cut junk era commons = most iconic cards ever

Thanks to everyone here at Net54 for taking the time to view and comment on my previous posts regarding my artwork. I anticipate finishing several pieces over the next few months, so instead of starting a separate thread...I'll just update this one.

6.5 years of doing this, and I have finally completed my first Babe - this 1933 Goudey. This was a commission and is not available. 22"x 26.5". Cut baseball cards.

As usual wow!
Your work keeps getting better and better. The Babe is amazing!
Looking forward to the next piece which you'll be completing in 2016 for me. That makes it #2 for me.
Congrats, and keep posting them.

A funny twist would be to flip this approach around by cutting up valuable vintage cards to create a 1989 Upper Deck Jerome Walton RC. Okay, kidding of course! Love your stuff!

I woke today to find many, MANY more emails than I am used to receiving. This definitely explained it! To have anyone - and I mean anyone - to rank my work with some of the guys in the sports art business that we all enjoy....it's a powerful thing for the confidence!

I would display it on an easel rather than hang it. If anyone knows someone within the PSA ranks that can make this happen......pretty please?

Oh, the cards I once traded for a Jerome Walton '89 UD (along with a Dwight Smith from the same set)! I would be run out of town for this type of project, lol.

Much better chance of making one with a 3-D printer !

I'd think Joe would love to slab your Mantle for publicity purposes.

What about building a GIGANTIC bicycle out of pieces of scrap metal and then putting your '52 Cut Junk Mantle in the spokes. Sorta like this...




That would make the ultimate display.

PSA would have to note that your Mantle is trimmed!

They are all awesome, but that Biggio is just insanely good. Looks exactly like him. Nice work!

Tim, was there any temptation at all to construct the work entirely out of 1988 Fleer Biggio cards?

None. Unless it's requested that I use a HOFer's cards, I limit the cards cut to true commons (with emphasis on junk era wax). I occasionally have to stray from the junk era time period to include some Topps Heritage, Bowman Heritage, etc....but I have stayed firm since the beginning on the commons. I figure some kid somewhere will eventually be able to appreciate a legend's cards, low cash value included!

I started the '54 Topps about 3 years ago, and it has remained unfinished since. Commission work amped up at that time, so it was pushed to the back burner. I also love the '56 Banks, and it would be one that I'd like to make in the future.

Did the format change on this forum? For some reason when I click on a thread I cannot scroll down to view all the posts. I have to click the next or previous button to view each one. Maybe its my computer. If not, the new format sucks Leon.

Can't wait to see the 53 Topps Mantle. It is one of my favorite Mantle cards.

As great as these images look online, they don't compare to seeing the real thing where you can really appreciate the detailed work involved and just how close Tim gets to the original.
