In 1989, I sold my first Beckett Baseball Magazine at my baseball card store (The Dugout) in Fairborn, Ohio as a sophomore in high school. This January, I am pleased to announce I will have a tiny spotlight on my sports artwork in Beckett magazine. As you might imagine, I am very excited for the opportunity to share my artwork with a much broader audience. Earlier this year, I was also added to Beckett’s Sports Artist Team, and have a gallery of my work on their website. Also in 2021, I will have the opportunity to sell a few pieces of my artwork directly through Pristine Auction. We have been told the art issue will hit the market around January 4th if not sooner for regular subscribers. So thank you to everyone that has helped to support my career and cheered me on along the way. As some of you probably have heard me say, I decided in the second grade that I would either be the Reds’ centerfielder or an artist. Those of you that played sorts with me along the way know one option had already passed me by early in my high school career, ha! So luckily, I was able to continue to work on my art skills, was blessed to study under a few amazing art teachers and worked at my drawing skills nearly everyday since. To all the teachers that were frustrated with my non stop doodling in class, well I had a plan all along… ha!

Honored and humbled to have my baseball artwork spotlighted in the current issue of Beckett’s “Art of The Game” magazine. The issue has an amazing collection of sports artists to enjoy. The issue also includes the art of Topps Project 2020, the history of art and sports cards, and highlights many talented sports artists. You can find a copy at book/magazine stores and online. Thanks, Brent

I am currently creating a ton of 5x7’s for this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. We will have artwork from the size of baseball cards, up to 18x20 artwork available for purchase. Baseball is our main focus but we wil also offer artwork from other sports and historical icons as well. Should be a cool challenge for 2021. It is only January, but I think we are off to a great start.

Sounds Great Brent! You'll definitely have to let folks here know where you're going to be located so they can stop by your booth to make a purchase or to just to say hi.

Now will these only be available at the National or will anyone not attending be able to make a purchase?
