My baseball art collection
 
I was bored tonight so I decided to show off some of my collection of art baseballs that I've gotten signed.

I started this project several years ago basically getting random artists to draw different characters from Star Wars or Lord of the Rings on baseballs.

I then had the idea ... why not get celebs to sign these baseballs when they come to a show ... and that idea became the below collection :)

I'm putting together a list of the artists and will post it once I finish it. I got lazy keeping track of it in my Excel sheet after the first few.

The main artist I've been using lately is Gary Kezele!

MASNAR 05-22-2012 02:27 PM

Wow...very awesome collection

t2554 01-17-2014 02:13 PM

Awesome and unique collection! And incredible art, it can't be easy to draw on a baseball lol.

aces 01-17-2014 07:56 PM

That's some amazing stuff.

I gotta wonder, how did the actors react when you presented these to be signed? Not something they see every day.....

CAS239 01-17-2014 08:36 PM

That's pretty awesome and original. Congrats on some amazing art pieces

Cujobyte 01-17-2014 08:58 PM

Wow, amazing and unique is right! Yeah, Gary's great to deal with, have a few of his ap's. Congrats!

It's a great conversation piece. Most take a picture of it. Summer Glau took a pic and sent it to her dad (or uncle ... Can't remember which) because he played baseball in college.

Laura Vandervoort tweeted it and said "At a sci fi show and someone is letting me sign their balls" I had 2 baseballs for her to sign.

Carrie Fisher basically yelled as my friend (who had the Leia ball signed for me) was walking away ... "Thanks for letting me sign your balls"

Stan Lee's handler said to Stan ... "Man ... He made you look too young!"

Most are very impressed and actually nervous because they usually don't sign baseballs.
