Baseball Card Vandals

Beau Abbott, Bryan Abbott


The true story and bizarrely brilliant art of the creative duo Mashable called “the Rembrandt and Picasso of vandalized baseball cards.”

Every day since 2012, brothers Beau and Bryan Abbott have drawn crude jokes on their old trading cards from the ’80s and ’90s and posted them on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram as Baseball Card Vandals. Now the fruits of this completely unnecessary labor have been collected in this stunningly absurd book.

Inside you’ll find a collection of over 200 “expertly” vandalized cards—including dozens of never-before-seen artworks—that blend the Vandals’ signature oddball humor and artistic flair with a charming dose of sports nostalgia.

Featuring an introduction on the Baseball Card Vandals history and process as well as a beautiful design inspired by vintage baseball cards, this book will be a hit with sports fans, art lovers, memorabilia collectors, pop culture watchers, Internet geeks, comedy connoisseurs, and permanent marker sniffers everywhere.
