The guys at The Big Lead have done a great Q&A with legendary sports artist Dick Perez. Anyone whose collected baseball cards is probably aware of Perez’s Diamond Kings series of portraits featured by the Donruss & Leaf company back in the 80’s and 90’s. In addition to his baseball card work Perez is responsible for the Perez-Steele postcard sets of players in the Major League Baseball Hall Of Fame and more recently artwork for the Topps Allen & Ginter baseball card product. Perez is now releasing a 560 page book featuring a gallery of his work including both mainstream and non-mainstream baseball work. In the interview, Perez talks about his inspiration for the book and his interaction with his fans.
