Artist Pat Riot launched his website, Popular Vulture, featuring a wonderful gallery of collage art baseball cards.
These cards are awesome. Nice work. Hand cut, no less…
And that Dave LaRouche, a.k.a the human Ritz cracker, threw a mean splitter back in the day.
I cannot imagine doing this to my collections…but the players he’s “updated” aren’t exactly blue chips.
I like that someone had the idea for this. I clicked over immediately from the Twitter post about this when I saw “baseball cards” and “art”.
How could I not?
I wonder what this does to the monetary value of these cards.
Do they become more collectable or less collectable?

Well, some people think Edgar Martinez deserves a spot in the Hall, but I think Frank Thomas beats him by just about any reasonable metric.
Bottom right is swiped from an old eightball comic, a strip about looking for inspiration which makes it quite ironic.
cool site he’s got. i just started a flickr group for baseball cards with players wearing glasses…will be expanding to afros, facial hair, jewelry, etc in the future! http://www.flickr.com/groups/balkmag/
