Philadelphia artist Daniel Duffy recently unveiled his latest piece — an image of Great American Ball Park created entirely from the written names of every Cincinnati Reds player in the team’s 150-year history.
That’s 2059 names, if you’re keeping track.
Through his Art of Words website, Duffy sells prints of his works, which recreate “iconic places and moments in history by meticulously handwriting relevant words.”
Previous sports venues to get the “word art” tribute include Cleveland’s Progressive Field, University of Maryland’s XFINITY Center and Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field. Duffy has also created works depicting city skylines (with the names of streets and neighborhoods), individual athletes like Aaron Judge, Ray Lewis and Steph Curry (with game dates, stats and other personalized data) and music legends like Bruce Springsteen and Jerry Garcia, which the artist conjures from song lyrics.
Reds fans can get an unframed 16-by-20-inch print of Duffy’s Great American Ball Pak piece for $49, or splurge for a larger framed print ($209.99) or even the original piece ($3,000).
