Out of the Park! Topps 2022 Museum Collection Artwork

I was invited to contribute artwork to the Topps Museum Collection again in 2022. Like most of the trading card projects I work on, the artwork is created months in advance so I wasn’t able to draw a lot of the rookies and some of the players were drawn in jerseys that would later be changed up. However, I did know that Wander Franco would be part of this set and some of the mainstays like Trout, Molina, and others were included with the jerseys they would wear all season.


A lot of the sketch cards were painted for this set, using Holbein designer gouache. These medium is water based and is excellent for artists like myself that make a lot of mistakes! It also has a chalky surface that allows for usage of pencil crayons overtop. The Mike Trout sketch card to the left was painted with Gouache, and so were some of my artist proofs that I previously sold, like the Rodriguez, Judge, and Pujols.

Scroll across the gallery below to see some samples of the sketch cards I created for the 2022 Topps Museum Collection set.
