Amazing Eagles Artwork Features Names of Every Birds Player Ever

The print took about 60 hours to create and features 1,739 names in total.

You've likely seen Daniel Duffy's artwork before, be it a Phillies World Series print or Brian Dawkins screaming with passion, and now he's back with a particularly cool Eagles jawn.

If you're not familiar with Duffy's work, he goes by Philly Word Art and uses words to form images. For his latest piece, he uses the name of every Eagles player... ever! And forms them into the iconic Eagles logo from the 90s era.

We spoke with Duffy about this particular project and he shared some interesting tidbits. He double checked the names of every player to make the Eagles roster from the team's inception through the 2016 season. Sorry Derek Barnett!

The print took about 60 hours to create and features 1,739 names in total.

The most challenging part of the print?

"Just knowing how many people love the Birds and I didn't want to screw it up," Duffy told us. "I wanted to make sure that it was as good as it could be, that's why I went with as many names as possible. The good, the bad and the ugly (Babin)."

He also informed us that no, Frank Gore did not make the print.

It wasn't all Jason Babins though, Duffy had plenty of fun creating it.

"I enjoyed writing the names of players I've only heard about from my grandfathers and Ray Didinger...Van Buren, Van Brocklin and McDonald. As well as recognizing great names grouped very closely to each other... Jaworski + Montgomery, Dawkins + McNabb."

The last name technically should have been Wisniewski but Dan took some artist liberties and ended with Wentz.
