With everyone staying at home because of the pandemic, baseball cards are more popular than ever before.
People are having fun watching baseball card unboxing videos on YouTube as they share nostalgia of baseball history during this time where we have no sports in action.
One of the most popular baseball card designs of all time is the 1987 Topps featuring wood paneling.
In this tutorial, I show you how to design your own 1987 Topps baseball card.
As a graphic designer with a love for art and sports, I am a huge fan of the Topps Project 2020 cards that have broken the internet this summer as it has crossover appeal in the worlds of traditional art, hip-hop and pop culture, sneakerheads, fashion designers, jewelry artists, sneakerheads, and tattoo and graffiti artists.
What is the Topps 2020 Project?
20 iconic baseball cards. 20 culture-defining artists. PROJECT 2020 by Topps visually reimagines the baseball cards that have defined generations, ushering in a new era of seminal artwork. The year-long program features premium, thick trading cards encased in a protective plastic case.
Sophia Chang is a popular artist from Queens, New York and made a name for herself in the art, design and streetwear community worldwide. Some of her clients include Nike, Adidas, Apple, Footlocker, HBO, and the NBA.
Her art style is a mix of hand drawn fonts and shapes with vibrant colors and an overall positive vibe that makes you feel happy.
My favorite card designed by her in this set is the Ichiro, but I was too late to the game as these cards sell for only a 48 hour window. But I loved her Willie Mays, plus he's an iconic player so I had to get it!
