The Peter Chen Jumbotron art is a home run. California-based artist Peter Chen is drawn "to baseball portraiture and the iconic quality inherent in baseball's greatest players." His love of the sport is evident in these portraits of players from the 1970s and 80s. The series provides a nostalgia for the players featured who were childhood heroes for fans growing up. Many of the prints feature icons of the game and Hall of Famers such as Reggie Jackson, Hank Aaron and Rickey Henderson.

The series uses a unique printing effect. On each print, Chen uses a laser printer to create a grid of dots, then a manual gold foil treatment. Chen hits it out of the park by effectively creating images that would have appeared on vintage jumbotrons. These prints are available for purchase on Etsy.
