“If people don't want to come to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?”
The inimitable wisdom of one Yogi Berra.
The answer, of course (assuming we understand the question): make the stadiums come to the people.
Which is precisely the goal of Stadium Graph, creators of Ballpark Diamonds, a beautiful series of laser-cut relief sculptures of baseball’s most iconic stadiums, from Fenway to Wrigley to AT&T Park.
Measuring 9x9 inches and carved into a single-grain white oak veneer and solid oak casing, these beauts are sturdy enough to hang. And you’ll want them displayed prominently: the attention to each stadium’s heritage and idiosyncrasies is astounding (on Fenway: “From Pesky and Fisk foul poles to the Monster, and the lone red seat.”)
Stadium Graph currently lists six stadium reliefs for sale on Kickstarter, though five are only available in combo packs that include wooden coasters. Still, if you’re a true baseball fan, we suggest pledging in the $350 tier: this gets you any stadium you want, past or present.
As Yogi would say, “It’s deja vu all over again.”
