Artist Trading Cards

I grew up as an avid NBA card collector. My show and tell in 5th grade made all the boys jealous. Last semester I started reclaiming the hundreds of cards I had stored away; using them as a surface to print on. Now, I have eons of cool, altered, ex-NBA, now-ARTier, cards that make a great starting point for ATCs. Each one has a little piece of me; especially the most recent addition of the King Tut card. Enjoy!


  1. Great idea! I would be brave enough to challenge your Chicago Bull collection with mine, however.

    Besides my favorite cards, I may have to jump on the bandwagon on this idea!

  2. Hm... Interesting that you challenge my Chicago Bull collection, as they were (and will always be) my favorite. I wouldn't dream of printing on my MJs.. I did save out my most prized players from the printing press, but I really love the knowledge that when I incorporate them into art, they contain a part of my passions and my past. We should swap some..

  3. I hope you checked the value of all the cards before you altered them? The cards look really good.
