Pin Highlight: Philadelphia Phillies Bryce Harper WinCraft Player Jersey Pin

Out of stock.  This product is currently not available.  Nothing left.  Gone.  These are just some of the ways to describe the status of this new piece of Bryce Harper merchandise.

As an avid Phillies fan and pin collector, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to own one of these bad boys.  On the same day that I purchased a new Bryce Harper Phillies t-shirt, I got this WinCraft jersey pin.  The Phillies sold out of this pin very quickly.  Luckily, I was able to snag one.

WinCraft is known for making lots of neat pins.  Especially when it comes to special events.  As you can see, this one features a white Phillies jersey with red pinstripes.  Harper’s name, #3, and facsimile signature have been added.  Out of respect for former Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay, Bryce Harper didn’t want to continue wearing #34.  #7 was his second choice, but that’s already taken by Maikel Franco.  Bryce Harper wasn’t going to ask him to change his number just because he showed up.

The Phillies made tons of moves over the winter.  Fans can’t complain about them not trying anything.  I predict the Phillies will go 161-1 this season.  They’ll lose the first game, and win the rest.

Bryce Harper In A Phillies Uniform – Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces Has That Too!

Here we go Phillies fans!!!  Bryce Harper is officially coming to Philadelphia.  After months of speculation and countless rumors, its finally happening.  The deal is worth $330 million over 13 years.  I think he’s going to be an excellent addition to the Phillies roster.  Not only will the team benefit from him, but the local economy as well.  Its all about merchandising!!!

Bryce Harper is one of the key players on the checklist for Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces.  Knowing that he’d probably be with a new team this year, artist Monty Sheldon held off so at least one of Harper’s baseballs would feature him in his new uniform.  Just like he did with Manny Machado.

Baseball Authenticated Masterpieces is scheduled to be released this spring.  (150) game-used, hand-painted, and autographed baseballs.  (3) different baseballs per player within the main set.

Phillies Dream Scene Artist Jamie Cooper Warns About Fake Prints

Jamie Cooper is an amazing artist.  This former professional footballer in the Australian Football League (AFL) has gone on to create fantastic pieces of artwork that are on display all over the world.  You definitely should check out his stuff.

Here in America, collectors, sports fans, and art enthusiasts know him best for the Phillies Dream Scene that hangs on display outside the Diamond Club at Citizens Bank Park.  Mr. Cooper has also painted a Yankees Dream Scene which was auctioned off by Legendary Auctions in 2013 in Chicago during the National Sports Collectors Convention.  An All Stars Dream Scene was painted too for a private collector in California.

Owning the actual paintings isn’t something every collector can do.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy his artwork.  High-quality prints are a much more affordable option.  Luckily he offers these prints for most of his work.  I have one of the Phillies Dream Scene on my wall right now.  It looks terrific.

Recently it was brought to my attention that counterfeit prints of Jamie Cooper’s work have been floating around.  They’ve shown up for sale on Facebook.  Judging by the pictures, they’re of very poor quality.  You can tell that these scammers simply swiped the images off of his website, and are just trying to make a quick dollar.  DO NOT BUY!!!  If you see them pop up on your feed, please report it to Facebook.  For those of you that did get duped, please let me know how your experience went.

If you’re looking for an authentic Jamie Cooper print, the best way to know that its 100% genuine is to purchase it directly from his shop.

Take a gander at these fakes.
