Exciting Sport Kings News
(Toronto, Ontario September 27, 2011) Dr. Brian H. Price is pleased to announce that he has signed an exclusive agreement with well-known artist Jared Kelley to paint for Sport Kings and In The Game on trading cards.
"I have been admiring Jared's work for some time now and felt that his work would be an awesome addition to my trading card companies," said Price. "His painting directly on trading cards brings another dimension to the hobby and I know collectors of my products are going to enjoy collecting his work."
Most recently, Kelley painted twenty-two of the forty-two US Presidents for Upper Deck's Goodwin Champions product. The cards Kelley painted currently sell for upwards of $700 in the hobby.
"Jared will be painting his first cards for Sportkings Series E, which will be released in the spring of 2012. We will be adding a couple of new wrinkles in the painting of these cards to make them even better than the ones Jared has done before," said Price. "I am excited to have Jared join our family as we are all dedicated to make trading cards that collectors want to collect."
Jared is an illustrator and portraitist living in rural Alabama. He received a BFA from Auburn University Montgomery in Studio Painting and taught visual art to grades 6-12 for three years after graduating college. He is also the Executive Assistant for the Alabama Alliance for Arts Education. Part of his time is also spent hosting yearly paint classes at Camp Smile-A-Mile for children and teens fighting cancer, as well as for their families. Some of Jared's past clients have been Alabama Governor Don Seigleman, Fredrick G. Levin, the Upper Deck Company, Baptist Medical Centers, and talk radio host Greg Budell.
