Baseball Seams Co. ready for takeoff with SkyMall Catalog

An estimated 1.7 million airline passengers fly every single day.  And if you’ve ever flown in a plane, there’s almost no doubt that you have at least flipped through a SkyMall Catalog wedged in the seat pocket hitting your knees.  After all, what else is there to do on an airplane?  Airline passengers are one of the largest captive audiences any retailer could market to.

That said, it’s with great excitement I announce that my “America’s Game” product line will be featured in SkyMall Catalog from July 1st through December 31st.  The original artworks are showcased on a quarter-page ad within the “Travelers Selections” area, and the entire product line can be found on SkyMall’s web site at  You can also view the Summer Catalog online.

Needless to say, I’ve spent most of my spare time during the last two months creating an inventory of original artworks in preparation for the increased demand.  I owe a special thanks to my wife and sister-in-law (AKA – “my sweatshop workers”) for all their help tearing apart hundreds of baseballs.  I anticipate a large chunk of the orders to come between Thanksgiving and Christmas during the peak gift-buying season, so just as Noah built his ark in anticipation for the big flood; I’ll continue to create my artworks in advance of the flood of holiday orders!

So next time you fly, nudge your neighbors and show them how baseball is more than just a game!
