The Dick Perez Original Art Collection
Perhaps only Leroy Neiman could claim a loftier position in the hierarchy of sports artists than the wonderfully talented Dick Perez, whose studies baseball's greatest superstars established the "Perez-Steele Galleries" postcard series as a hobby leviathan. While the majority of Perez' baseball artwork was commissioned for that use, he did on occasion outsource for competitor brands, as is the case with the six works that follow. Each portrait of the game's greatest long ball artists found a home on the packaging for "Super Bubble Bubble Gum," filling the entire back panel to form a 3.5x6.5" Donruss brand baseball card. Each original work, rendered in Perez' preferred watercolor medium, measures 10x14" in size, and is attractively matted and framed to final dimensions of 19x23". A pouch on the back of each frame contains the packaging spawned by the work, in Mint, unused condition. Pick your favorite or try for them all.
