    2004 Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb and Napoleon Lajoie Original Artwork by Grant Smith. A haunting oil painting from artist Grant Smith of three of the greatest hitters the game has seen. "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb, and Napoleon Lajoie. The blue-gray hued heroes look like statues or ghosts from a long forgotten era. The complimentary background contrasts strongly with the foreground creating a feeling of tension. One improbable feat these three men have in common is that they all have broken the .400 plateau for an entire baseball season. The title of the work refers to that difficult feat " 3 x .400 ." A print of this painting hangs in the home of Yankees star Johnny Damon. The overall dimensions of the piece are 18x24", with frame 24x30".
    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $3,600.
