Jeter Gets Record, Beckett Gets KJ

Posted in News on July 10th, 2011 by admin

Worldwide trading card authority, Beckett Media, once again chooses Celebrity Sports Artist Kevin-John to commemorate another sports milestone. Moments after New York Yankee, Derek Jeter, connected with a pitch and nailed his record 3,000th hit on July 9, 2011, Kevin-John also put his talents to work. The artist, by commission, created two original sketch cards featuring Jeter and his grand slam. Kevin-John actually illustrated directly on the 2inch x 3 inch cards; each piece is a one of one and will not be reproduced. The cards will be won by the high bidder on Beckett Auctions.

These cards are the 4th and 5th in an ongoing series commissioned exclusively by Beckett Media where the artist will capture great moments in sports as they occur. Beckett Media comments “Kevin-John is a professional sports artist who has been highly recognized for his celebrity work for a number of years. We are proud to be working with him.”
