Default 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



Everyone signed by the actor ...
Stan Lee by Gary Kezele
Captain Kirk by Jennifer Mercer signed by William Shatner
Spock by Lawrence Reynolds signed by Leonard Nimoy
Eliza Dushku by Gary Kezele
Summer Glau by Gary Kezele
SuperGirl by Gary Kezele signed by Laura Vandervoort
Commander Data by Lawrence Reynolds signed by Brent Spiner
Commander Rikerby Lawrence Reynolds signed by Jonathan Frakes
Lt Worf by Lawrence Reynolds signed by Michael Dorn


Val Kilmer by Gary Kezele
Darth Maul by Kevin Doyle signed by Ray Park
Chewbacca by Kyle Babbitt signed by Peter Mayhew
Darth Talon by Rhiannon Owens
Jabba by Tim Proctor
Slave Leia by Randy Martinez signed by Carrie Fisher
Trooper by Jamie Snell
Old Obi-Wan by Paul Allen Ballard
Young Obi-Wan by Bryan Morton (not official ball)
Anakin by Bryan Morton



Witch King by Michael Champion / Chris Summers
Gollum by Chris Fulton
Orc Leader by Gabriel Hernandez
Gimli by Richard Salvucci (Alfio1956)
Gandalf by Leah Mangue
Saruman by Chris Hoffman
Faramir by David Rabbitte
Aragorn by Brandon Kenney
Boromir by Ryan Arneson
Arwen by James O'Barr

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!

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.....

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.
