(lyrics by vernon reid).
i used to listen to some living colour. i saw them in concert a couple of times, including once when they opened for the rolling stones on the 'steel wheels' tour. that was in la at the coliseum along with guns n' roses, who were an la only add on the tour. good times, but i digress.
i was recently motivated to pick up the dodgers from the 1996 topps gallery set, plus one white sox card. these 1996 topps gallery cards cover many different types of artistry. while i avoided taking art history in college, i do enjoy a good museum and i have some pretty clear preferences when it comes to paintings and specific artists.
on to the cards. here's mike piazza
he's a master. the card is a sort of precursor to the upper deck masterpieces sets, except that only the background on this card has the canvas look to it.
too bad there weren't any cards using the pointillism technique, but then again, aren't these cards just a bunch of little dots on cardboard?
