Sporting Life Art Cards will give away 100 promotional cards each day at the National Sports Collectors Convention. The ”Card of the Day Giveaway” details will be revealed each morning using social media sites on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, collectors will have an opportunity to receive a second free card, just by posting the card on one of the above mentioned sites. The first cards will be handed out at the VIP Party on Wednesday.
“The cards that I create are extremely labor intensive, and to create these promo cards has been a massive undertaking”, commented Jerrold Andrews, owner of the Sporting Life trademark. “The normal production of any card that I create is about two dozen, including variations.” Andrews creates all the art work himself, using a unique culmination of digital and hand-rendered art, and then painstakingly hand assembles and distresses each card to varying degrees. The end product looks and feels like an artifact from a 100-year-old attic find.
Andrews created the first “distressed art cards” in 2008 with his Sporting Life brand, and also owns the Sport Kings trademark, which he currently leases to a third-party card producer. The former Ford Motor Company Art Director has been involved in the hobby for over four decades.
