On June 1st, 1999, Topps Baseball cards released a twenty-card subset in the 1999 Topps Gallery packs featuring ten of James Fiorentino's artwork. Once a boyhood dream and now a reality, Fiorentino's concept celebrates contemporary stars in a 1953 baseball card representation. Lithographs and the orignal artworks were offered as contest prizes. The cards are currently the hottest and most sought after insert cards in the hobby. (Listed as #1 collected set and cards in Beckett Magazine) James' next card set will be with Just Minors, a minor league card company, which he will paint three subjects including Nolan Ryan, Rick Ankiel (1999 Minor League Player of the Year), and the top nine players at each position. Each painting will depict the players in their major and minor league uniforms and will be made into lithographs and baseball cards. An estimate of 20 cards will be found in the 2000 Just Minor packs. As one of Just Minors' innovative products, James will be transformed into an action figure (see example to left) depicting him in his college baseball uniform where James was a star athlete. This will be the first action figure of an artist-athlete and will be available through this website.
