My name is Matt and I recently found a way to combine my love of art with my love of sports cards. I was going through a bunch of my old stuff and found a ton of old baseball cards from the mid 80’s to early 90’s (what is commonly referred to as junk wax). Any baseball card collector will tell you that the cards released during this period are mostly worthless because Topps, Upper Deck, Fleer and Donruss over-produced their products.
So, what do I do with all these cards? They still look cool. And they definitely have nostalgic value. Why not make art? How about a baseball card coffee table? And so it began…
Collected creates collage art using vintage sports cards, post cards and other nostalgic ephemera. Each piece is unique, using original vintage items, and is finished with a durable, smooth resin coating for beautiful, lasting works of art.
Imagine sitting at your local sports pub and glancing at players of yesteryear on the bar top. If you can imagine it, Collected can do it.
