Following the successful reception of its artist-designed baseball cards, Topps is now gearing up to launch a selection of fine art prints as part of its ongoing PROJECT 2020 installment. The collection features original designs atop iconic baseball cards of legendary players by a cast of 20 artists from across the globe including famed streetwear designers, tattoo and graffiti artists and other key figures. Participants include Ben Baller, Don C, Grotesk, Joshua Vides, Sophia Chang, Mister Cartoon, King Saladeen and many others.

From a print featuring a 1992 draft pick card of Derek Jeter reimagined by Andrew Thiele to a piece spotlighting the 2011 card of Mike Trout reworked by Ben Baller, the limited-edition framed fine art prints arrive all signed and numbered by the artists in the project. Each print measures 14 by 18 inches with 100 units in the general edition outfitted with a black frame and 20 works in the AP edition with a silver frame. Additionally, one of one gold framed prints will be available for each design. All prints come with certificates of authenticity.
