A couple more down. Biggio was a commission (some fun news about that one later), and Lajoie was one that I've just worked on sporadically for a couple of years until it was finally finished today.

1993 Studio Craig Biggio (entire setup will be between 6 and 7 feet tall after final framing is done):

Damn dude, that Biggio is spot on! I love the how the shading in the star makes it look like the stitching in the logo, and his face, which I would assume is one of the harder things to do, is dead on!

The size of them vary, but tend to be in the 22" x 28" area. Tobacco cards are not as wide and are taller, while the 1930's Goudey and Leaf are wider and slightly shorter.

Finished this 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan commission yesterday (24.5" x 33.5"):




I also have been working a few images of celebration (love the emotion!) lately. Here are the 2 pieces I finished just before that 86 Fleer Jordan:


Tom Brady (24" x 28.5"):




1991 NBA Finals Michael Jordan (23.5" x 33"):

I'm about to hit a stretch of (mostly) vintage commissions, but here are a couple of modern pieces I recently finished:

Always outstanding. Eyeballing your pieces, it looks like it would be so easy, yet I am sure it is absolutely not. I am half tempted to try one just to see how terrible mine would look, but would not waste the time and effort, knowing full well that would be time better spent elsewhere! You have a talent that is increasingly better as more pieces are released Tim.

Must have missed this post Tim as I'm not on or checking everyday, but these are Awesome! Especially the MJ RC which only continues to grow in iconic majesty. Pooling all sports together I think this card almost has to be in the Top 10 behind the T-206 Wagner, the '52 Topps Mantle of course, and possibly a few others but it's stature definitely continues to rise.
And your talent has captured the raw emotions of these 2 Goats to a tee.

As always Great stuff Tim!!

Wow! How in the world do you so this? Crazy how spot on they all look.

What so you usually charge for this?
