Art Cards

I've always been for variety in cards.  The last decade or so has seen a smattering of sets that consist of cards with painted rather than photographed images.

In my last COMC purchase shipped around Christmas I received four cards from the 2001 Topps Gallery set.

When I got them I noticed that three of the four were by the same artist, Bill Purdom.  All three have smiling players which was what appealed to me.
The fourth card, of Pedro Martinez with more of a Mona Lisa smile,  is by Ron Stark.  That name rang a bell with me.  Yes, he did a bunch of great cards for UD Masterpieces.  Here are a handful:
