Nick Foles took the country by storm on Monday night when he stepped in for an injured Mike Vick in front of a national audience on ESPN and proceeded to throw darts against the New England Patriots and their second and third teamers. But if Foles doesn’t turn out to be the next Joe Montana, he could still make a run at being the next Pablo Picasso.
Perhaps you’ve seen these drawings on sports cards done by NFL rookies this season for the Panini America card company — Andrew Luck’s Lucas Oil Stadium that auctioned for $1,500 garnered quite a bit of attention — but other stories failed to notice the genius of Eagles’ backup-superstar-in-the-waiting Nick Foles.
SB Nation did a ranking of sorts of all of the rookie’s works of art, but clearly overlooked Foles’ strokes like so many other NFL team’s who passed him up in April’s draft.
Look at the use of those blacks and greys, the white space, accentuated nicely with the green text. The “Fly Eagles” is a bit tough to decipher, leaving it up the viewer’s interpretation.
You can see more NFL rookie artwork on baseball cards here, but like in football and life, it doesn’t get much better than Nick Foles.
