Artist Makes Good Money Cutting Up Baseball Cards

LaVern Brock isn't your average baseball card collector. Like many, Brock will spend hundreds of dollars on cards every month. Instead of keeping the cards for safe keeping, Brock cuts all the cards into tiny pieces to use in his baseball themed works of art.

Some of the work is really well done. It doesn't surprise me one bit that in an interview with AOL News, Brock said each piece of baseball card art sells for at least $5,000.00.  You can check out all the artwork by LaVern Brock on his official website, Baseball Card Art.

Brock is also unlike a lot of collectors, in that he actually liked the over-production on cards in the 80's and 90's because it allows him so many choices when producing his art pieces.

"In the '80s and '90s, there started to be more types of cards, and that allows me to make collages with more variety."
