Description

    Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Original Artwork by Darryl Vlasak. Large and magnificent portrait of the heart of Murderers Row is unmistakably the work of celebrated artist Darryl Vlasak, one of the most popular and critically acclaimed painters in the sports art arena. It's easy to see why Vlasak has achieved such a level of success as we consider the photo-realistic study of this iconic pair as they share a laugh behind the batting cage, circa 1927. The work on canvas measures 24x30" in size, with the elegant and expensive wood frame extending the dimensions to 31x38". When this work was offered at auction in 2005, it realized a price of over $6,200, and Vlasak's star has only risen since then. We expect that one cultured art connoisseur will see this lot as the special opportunity that it is.

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