Description

    1934-36 R327 Diamond Stars Rogers Hornsby and Jim Bottomley Unpublished Original Art. It has long been an unanswered question why the final 12 scarce subjects that close National Chicle's "Diamond Stars" series were merely a repeat of a dozen previously used subjects. That was until a dozen pieces of original and unpublished artwork were discovered a half century after their initial release. The most unique was the art featuring St. Louis Browns teammates Jim Bottomley and Rogers Hornsby. This 5-1/2" x 4-1/2" one-of-a-kind art has been rendered in the same art deco style, a full color backdrop surrounds finely detailed monochromatic portraits of the Hall of Fame duo sharing a friendly moment. It truly is a shame this card was not part of the original 108-card promotion. The painting has been professionally mounted without the use of adhesives, then matted and framed to an overall size of 11-1/2" x 10-1/2." The art itself is generally in excellent condition with player names and a strip of corrective white out. A wonderful and unique piece of card collecting history.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
