    2007 Mickey Mantle "Topps Turkey Red Series" Original Artwork by Dick Perez. Stirring watercolor portrait was commissioned by Topps trading cards for inclusion in their 2007 Turkey Red Series, and was later sold by esteemed sports artist Dick Perez directly to our consignor. This image was one of Perez' personal favorites, and was used as card number 77 of the set. The wonderful 16x20" image is expertly matted and framed to a museum quality 27x31", and will be joined by nine examples of the Topps card for which it was created. Please see also the 1985 "Sluggers of the Hall of Fame" original Dick Perez artwork presented within this auction. Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.

    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.

    If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
