October 4, 2012 - Artist and Painter Amelie Mancini and her phenomenal “Left Field Cards”

 

You’re invited to join us on Thursday, Oct. 4 (6:00-8:00 pm) as we welcome French-born painter and artist Amelie Mancini the originator of Left Field Cards, a new revolution in baseball card creation as she unveils her latest work.  

Left Field Cards brings a playful and creative spin on the baseball cards loved and collected by generations of fans: their cards are hand printed from linoleum blocks, with space in the back for a note, address, and a stamp in lieu of statistics.

The cards are the perfect gift for baseball fanatics and art lovers alike. Crafted by hand with the utmost care and attention to detail, the cards are resolutely different and unique.  

Join us as Amelie will not only detail her unique process of creating and designing her cards, but she will also be unveiling the latest series of her work, "The Presidents of the United States of Baseball," which will be available at Pro League Authentics Center City Philadelphia location - 137 S. 13th Street (between Walnut and Samson).

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
