    Description

    1988 "The 500 Home Run Club" Original Artwork by Ron Lewis. The hundreds of signed prints created from this work has made the image one of the most recognizable in the hobby and established this as unquestionably the most famous work from Ron Lewis' sizable catalog of sports-themed art. "The Original Eleven," as they are typically called, mix magic and mastery as each appears in his youthful prime and most memorable uniform style against a backdrop of the old Yankee Stadium. While reproductions number in the tens or hundreds of thousands, there is only one original work, and this is it.

    The massive 30x57" acrylic on canvas was commissioned prior to the famous Atlantic City summit of the game's greatest living sluggers, where they joined forces to create some of the most popular signed collectibles in the modern hobby. The expanded dimensions of the original provides stunning detail lost in the conversion to smaller prints--even the facsimile signatures on the Louisville Sluggers are handled with exacting care. Individually, each of the eleven portraits is sure to impress fans of photorealistic artwork--together, the effect is mesmerizing.

    When it comes to investing potential for fine collectibles, one-of-a-kind status and universal recognition will always take you far, and the offered lot is the definition of each. Mint condition. Interested bidders be advised--you'll need some serious wall space for this enormous eye-catcher! Third party shipping required.
