Before John Mavroudis became internationally known for a pair of hand-lettered TIME magazine covers—one depicting Christine Blasey Ford, another listing the locations of 253 mass shootings in the United States as of August 8, 2019—he was familiar to many of us for his Fillmore and Moonalice posters. But before any of that, Mavroudis was, and still is, a passionate baseball fan.
Now the artist’s award-winning aesthetic and lifelong passion have come together in a T-shirt honoring beloved San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. You can get one of these shirts by being one of the first 20,000 fans to attend the Giants-Padres game on Sunday September 1, 2019. It’s the last game that Giants skipper Bruce Bochy will ever manage against his former team, for those of you at home keeping score, but go early for the shirt!
Nice one, John!
