Tomorrow’s the day that 2017 Topps Opening Day officially arrives — depending on your weather, of course — but the meteorological news is far from the big buzz of today.
The game-changer in this one? A set of mascot-worn Relic cards.
Yep, those fuzzballs of the diamond can be found in some new ways and beside the cards of the hot dogs at the concessions stand when you tear into packs of this low-end brand.
If you’re a long-time reader of The Buzz, you should remember sports artist S. Preston, who focuses on the small details and builds artwork around those little things that sports fans see and appreciate.
After a year of waiting for MLB licensing, Preston’s work is back with a new series of Minimalist Mascots prints, which are now available with a focus on the fast and furry-ous stars often found running around the ballpark.
The pieces were part of his portfolio back when we first visited his work in December but could not be sold because they were not licensed. Now, though, they are available to fans.
