Silver | Gold

If you saw the guerrilla “BP 4 pREDSident” campaign in 2011, you’ve seen Tyler Shelton’s handy-work with the Krylon can. The talented Cincinnati artist is a big fan of Brandon Phillips and just released this must-see process video of his most recent piece.

You can pick up a print of Brandon Phillips Silver | Gold on Tyler’s website for $25 or just $10 using the promo code “GOLDEN”.

On his Twitter account – @TribeTyler – Tyler’s also giving away at least three prints and one original of the Silver | Gold piece. The more RTs, the more that will be given away. Give him a follow for details.

Unheard Of Mr. Deadlegs Snapback

Mr. Deadlegs for your head

Unheard Of – The Swag King of Cincinnati – just dropped a massive bomb this morning with the release of hats and tees celebrating baseball and opening day in the Queen City.

First, the Mr. Deadlegs snapback, an OMGreds favorite, is back! It made its debut last summer in four colorways and sold out fast. Four new variations – Red Black/Red Grey and Tiffany/Black – are in stock for 2014 and will probably go quickly again. You better act fast. $29.99 in-store or on unheardofbrand.com.

Bart Simpson Jay Bruce

“Bart Bruce” is the perfect jam for the Reds fan with a Simpsons problem. Or, is it a Reds problem? Either way, El Barto channels his inner Texas-lefty for this killer tee. $35.00 Red and White S M L XL XXL in-store or on unheardofbrand.com.

Unheardof Big Dead Machine

The Big Red Machine will never die – They’ll just become zombies. Unheard Of really brings it with this tee featuring the now-iconic “Big Dead Machine”. $29.99 Black/Red and Red/White S M L XL XXL in-store or on unheardofbrand.com.

It's known around the country that Opening Day in Cincinnati is different than anywhere else. Opening Day in Cincinnati has become an event that's more than just the game.

199C

Opening Day is hurdling its way towards us like that meteor in Armageddon. But, just like every other year, Bruce Willis can’t stop this mama jama. It’s going to destroy this town and we’re going to love every bit of it.

Add to your must-attend Opening Day events this year 199C – Cincinnati’s only Opening Day art event. Hosted by the always-fresh crew at BLDG Gallery in Covington, Ky, 199C will feature over 40 artists, local and beyond, paying homage to the great game of baseball, Cincinnati and, of course, Opening Day.

The hallowed doors of BLDG Gallery open at 4pm on Friday, March 28 and the party goes on all night long with live music from Automagik, head-to-head vintage video game competitions, street Wiffle Ball and food trucks. If you can’t make it down for the opening, artwork will be on display at BLDG until April 25.

OMGreds will have a few pieces in the show, so you’ll at least want to show up for that! Am I right? Am I?

So, make sure you kick-off your Opening Weekend right. Take it from the OMG: This will be the jam.
