New artwork featuring Baseball Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins and retired MLB veteran Jermaine Dye is being turned into baseball cards with proceeds going to charity.
Jenkins and Dye are the subjects of the works created by artist Brittney Palmer and the paintings have been turned into Topps Project 70 styled encased cards.
The cards are numbered to 200 and signed by both the athletes and the artist. They’re being released in conjunction with the Larry Pogofsky Charity Golf event on Saturday and Sunday. Proceeds benefit the University of Chicago’s GI Research Foundation.
FJ-The cards are numbered to 200 and signed by both myself and Brittney Palmer. They are the 150pt. cards similar to the Topps Project 70 cards. They will be available on the GI research fundraising website. Both Jermaine Dye and myself will be promoting on our social media accounts and Brittney Palmer will as well. The cards will be selling for $125 each until they are gone. Both Jermaine and I are friendly with the Pogofsky family, the event is in honor of Larry Pogofsky, who passed away and was one of the owners of the White Sox.
