James Fiorentino, renowned baseball artist, and Latino Sports very own, hits a career milestone next Friday, March 10th as his latest work will be showcased at The Philly Show – the nation’s oldest trading card show, a three day exposition held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. 

“Fiorentino will unveil his ELITE collection, a series of 22 x 30-inch original watercolors signed by both the artist and the athlete he captured on canvas,” stated in a Forbes article by Dan Schlossberg. “The work has different themes, including Great Duos, vintage baseball, and even a few triple-signed player pieces.” 

Fiorentino, 45, a graduate of Drew University, has displayed his passion and love for sports through paintings, drawings, and canvas since his childhood. And, throughout his 30-year-professional career, a considerable amount of his work has appeared on Topps trading cards. 

Additionally, James has been creating the original artwork for the LatinoMVP Awards for over 15 years – the oldest, and most prestigious award given to Latino players across Major League Baseball.

We, at Latino Sports, believe his artwork is a major reason why the LatinoMVP is one of the most sought after awards in MLB. 

Provided below are a few photos of James presenting his artwork, the LatinoMVP award, to previous recipients during pre-game ceremonies as well as at our award banquets.
