A Monty Sheldon Mailday

Today in the mail I received a package from sports artist Monty Sheldon.  Sheldon is famous for painting his Artballs of popular baseball players and will be doing some of the artwork in the upcoming Topps National Chicle Football and Baseball sets.  Last week I did an interview with him and as a thank you he sent over a few card sets that he created for promotional purposes.  Below you’ll find a few cards from each set.  I think they look very nice, and each set contains cards of players you don’t always hear about, especially from the Black Sox Scandal.  Click on each photo for a closer look.
