“BASEBALL 100” Art Book by Mark Chiarello and Nel Yomtov Now on Kickstarter
It’s tough to tell how much Major League Baseball we can count on for the 2020 season. It’s already been reduced to a 60-game season, but with games being postponed daily, who knows where this will end? Luckily, baseball is home to the richest history of all North American sports. Therein lies the focus of a new crowdfunding campaign for Baseball 100.
Baseball 100 is a 128-page illustrated hardcover art book that will showcase the top 100 greatest baseball players in the history of the game. It doesn’t just focus on Hall of Fame players though, as it also considers Negro League players, current stars, banned for life players, as well as steroid-era players.
Baseball 100 is written by Nel Yomtov and features gorgeous illustrations by comic book veteran Mark Chiarello. Chiarello is a 30+ year veteran of the comic book industry, having worked in nearly every imaginable artistic role including colorist, artist, art director, and senior VP at DC Comics.
Baseball 100 is currently funding on Kickstarter and has a few weeks left to reach its goal (ends 27 August). Whether you’re a fan of baseball history or just a fan of beautiful artwork, Baseball 100 may be worth checking out here.
