The Art of Sports
The Art of Sports is coming to Leawood! The fast-growing sports card market gets an upscale remix in our studio, which features not only sports cards, hobby boxes, framed jerseys and memorabilia but also an extensive gallery of high-quality sports-themed art and photography. It’s a new kind of store for lovers of sports, offering everything from Topps cards and Panini stickers to prized collectibles to award-winning sports photography and art. TAOS will feature a wide selection of iconic photography from the legendary Rod Hanna, team photographer for the Chiefs’ teams of Super Bowls I and IV. We also have partnered with the current Kansas City Chiefs’ team photographer, Steve Sanders, to bring you memorable Chiefs photographs from the most recent Super Bowl campaigns, some never before available to the public. No gallery would be complete without the flavor of a great Kansas City artist, and Tina Blanck will bring her rare talents to the store as well. In addition to working with acrylic and ink, Tina specializes in a technique she calls “mosaic painting,” combining vivid colors and simple shapes to transform paintings into an absorbing piece of textured art that is as compelling as it is unique. The Art of Sports is truly an experience for the entire family—from card-collectors to art-collectors—and we hope to see you here soon!
