About the Artist
Minneapolis-based, Sam Herder has always had a passion for both baseball and fine art. At a young age he could constantly be found either on the diamond or drawing portraits of players from his favorite baseball cards. This hobby of practice continued through high school and into his college career as an Art and Design Major at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
After rediscovering the incredibly vast world of vintage sports cards, he was mesmerized by the beautiful artwork and portraits contained within original card designs. Pairing his passions once again, Sam is now leveraging his refined skills to produce gorgeous original oil paintings of some of the hobby's most iconic cards.
