Here are a few photos from a guy who asked me for one baseball every month, for a year. That's Satchel Paige, far left, then Babe Ruth, top center, Ty Cobb, Mel Ott, Walter Johnson, Roger Maris, Honus Wagner below that. The very front row.. I can't tell who that is on the left (guessing Mike Piazza), but it's Christy Mathewson, Jimmie Foxx, Cy Young and then Josh Gibson on the far right. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty amazing.
“Just picked up package from the post office today. Wow… It looks amazing! Thank you so much, it will be the gem of my collection.”
“Wow! The Boston baseball is beautiful...thank you very much.”
“Wow, Mike… just beautiful work!!! Love it all around…360.”
“I received the Maddux ball and it's great! The picture panels look really good and the gold glove panel is outstanding. Once again, you have created an outstanding work of art. Who needs Monet, when you've got Mike Floyd!”
“The ball came a few minutes ago - it is beautiful - maybe your best work yet!”
“The ball is so crazy cool. I love it... Your subtle shading in the "catch" and on the wrinkles of Willie's uniform on the batting image are so impressive.”
“WOW!! Just received my baseballs. That ball is crazy good Mike. I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning. It is truly amazing you can achieve that level of perfection in the amount of time you say it takes.”
“I wanted to let you know that the Ron Santo baseball arrived yesterday. You did a phenomenal job! It's really first-rate. I particularly like what you did with the heel click and the jersey retirement. I purchased a number of higher-end collectibles in connection with Santo's induction, but this is clearly the nicest. Thanks for all of the care, thought, and skill you put into it.”
“My 12 year old son and I were in Cooperstown, NY for a weeklong baseball tournament. We visited the HOF twice and when we were in the gift shop I saw your hand painted baseballs. With all the history and awesomeness of the HOF, seeing your work was one of the best parts.”
“The Hand Painted Baseballs are Beyond my Expectations. In a word “incredible”. You are extremely talented artist and I am so glad I found your website. To be honest, if you did not send me photos of the work in progress I would have said they were machine made.”
"OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! I just got my ball and opened it up, you are beyond beyond beyond AMAZING! It's so perfect, everything I wanted and more!"
