Baseball Card Vandals
From the creative duo Mashable called "the Rembrandt and Picasso of vandalized baseball cards."
A home run book that combines oddball humor with nostalgic collectibles: Every day since 2012, brothers Beau and Bryan Abbott have drawn crude jokes on their old trading cards from the '80s and '90s and posted them on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram as Baseball Card Vandals. Now the fruits of this completely unnecessary labor have been collected in this stunningly absurd book of the same name.
- A collection of over 200 "expertly" vandalized cards—including dozens of never-before-seen artworks—that blend the Vandals' signature oddball humor and artistic flair with a charming dose of sports nostalgia.
- Featuring an introduction on the Baseball Card Vandals' history and process as well as a beautiful design inspired by vintage baseball cards.
- Beau Abbott, a copywriter, and Bryan Abbott, an art director, are a pair of artistically inclined baseball nerds who began a project called Baseball Card Vandals in 2012 as an attempt to entertain themselves and some friends. Their hobby gained a following, a website, and now, a book. All stemming from an obsession with baseball cards.
Baseball Card Vandals will be a home run with sports fans, art lovers, memorabilia collectors, pop culture watchers, Internet geeks, comedy connoisseurs, and permanent marker sniffers everywhere.
Smart, clever and funny book featuring 200 baseball cards that have been extraordinarily and cleverly defaced.
