ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
As previously seen in SkyMall Catalog and the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum Shop - here is "America's Game" Baseball American Flag artwork straight from the artist himself, Nathan Rueckert, Founder of the Baseball Seams Co. This is the perfect gift for the baseball fan who has everything! Each artwork beautifully combines the love of baseball and America in a single image - an American flag carefully hand-crafted from real used baseball and a swatch of blue mesh baseball jersey material. Each piece is hand-numbered and signed by the artist and mounted on an 8"H x 10"L piece of white mat board. Over the last 16 years, over 2100 pieces have been created and sold. Various framing options are available. Custom framing options are also possible upon request for an additional charge.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
In the Fall of 2001 shortly after the tragic events of 9/11, Nathan Rueckert created a way to express his love for baseball and America in a single image: an American Flag formed from the very seams of "America's Game." Rueckert tore off the leather from three used baseballs and cut a swatch of navy blue mesh from an old baseball jersey in his closet and hand-crafted the very first "America's Game". Shortly thereafter, Rueckert obtained necessary copyrights, started a website, and hunted for more baseballs. Since 2001, Rueckert has cut-up tens of thousands of baseballs obtained from little leagues, high schools, colleges and athletic associations across the country. His work has been proudly featured in prominent retail outlets such as the Baseball Hall of Fame, 5 different Major League Baseball stadiums, and SkyMall Catalog.
