When the founder of High Heat Stats (@Andy_Van_Kay) decides to begin a new hobby, he doesn't mess around and now he is creating beautiful recreations of classic baseball cards using various mediums.

His first completed art piece is based on the iconic Reggie Jackson card from 1977 Topps Baseball. Measuring in at 8x10, this charcoal sketch is a faithful recreation of one of Mr. Octorber's most well known cards.

For his next piece, Andy took on one of the most beloved and treasured cards of all time, the 1909 Honus Wagner cigarette card. This piece is again drawn with charcoal but on thin cardstock as opposed to paper as the Jackson was produced.

Finally, like Dorothy entering Oz, Andy decided to work in color and recreated Bo Jackson's 1986 Topps card using a mix of charcoals and pastels.

Andy has always had an appreciation for baseball cards and has penned several articles for this site devoted to analyzing the "perfect" baseball cards in history including 1991 Fleer Bip Roberts,1965 Topps Bert Campaneris, 1980 Topps Denny Walling, and 1987 Donruss Terry Steinbach.

Each of these gorgeous pieces of art are available for purchase in our store (as well as a rare Babe Ruth etching from the 1940s). No reproductions will be produced so this is your chance to own a true original that would look great framed next to the classic baseball cards they emulate -- if you happen to have a Wagner card in your collection.
