Billy Pierce Print card


This is the second Billy Pierce card done by Edward Vela that I've picked up. The first was an 'unlimited' print card with BP in a portrait pose. As I mentioned in that post I really like this guy's work.

I've always felt good 'sports art' is hard to come by and when I find someone whose work is enjoyable I'll pick up things I can afford. Vela does all sorts of stuff and releases all kinds of cards but his baseball work is what I like the most.

This one was numbered to 9 as are most of what he puts on eBay. It cost $8 with free postage which is 2 bucks more than I paid for my 'jumbo' Archives packs which yielded me nothing much to speak of.

  1. That is about as beautiful as a baseball card could possibly be! I'm going to have to go check out this guy's work ASAP.

  3. Gorgeous. I like Mr. Vela's artistic style. After I'm done reading the rest of my blog posts, I'll have to see what stuff he has available on eBay.
