Up this week is a 7" x 10.5" art print: John Kruk as "Release the Krukker". 

This piece was a collaboration with John himself, autographed option is also available for this release.

Please Pick the Print you desire on the dropdown menu before checkout to secure an Autographed edition.

From the Artist: John Kruk was such an unforgettable character that it sometimes obscures the fact that he was such an incredible player. Kruk was a lifetime .300 hitter, and his first base fielding percentage of .995 is tied for 36th all-time at the position.

I wanted to create a piece that celebrates John as the force he was, most notably for the Phillies, as well as captures his fun spirit. His famous quote: "I ain't an athlete, lady, I'm a baseball player." is Uecker-level brilliance. And his very-of-the-times mullet is among the most glorious in the game and was the inspiration for this Kraken-esque take.

Our art prints (not a comic book) is printed on double-thick card stock & comes packaged in all the nostalgia you can ask for. The art print is a pre-order item for sale for one week only and then the print is retired and the print run is locked. *Frame not included.

Featured on Hot Stove:

A new piece of art each week -- a sports-themed 7” x 10.5” double-thick cardstock art print of an original artist-made piece of art. That's right, this isn't a comic book, it's just one piece of fun sports-themed nostalgia at a time. There are 20 different art prints released in a season (1 per week) and once they're gone… they're gone! From then on they'll only be available at higher cost on the secondary market.

*Tariff fee is applied during checkout on shipping cost for international orders.

“Every time I look at these prints, I think of my father. If artists can channel their adversity into incredible works of art that we get to enjoy, then we should challenge ourselves to turn our struggles into something that can benefit others.”
