Description

    Buck O'Neil Painting. In 2008 the Chicago Baseball Museum commissioned artist Grant Smith to create 2 paintings for their movie "Buck O'Neil And Black Baseball In Chicago". Offered is one of those 24" x 20" Oil on Masonite paintings depicting O'Neil in front of an advertising sign at Comiskey Park. Various symbols in the painting include a crow sitting on the fence in upper left(Jim Crow laws), Navy advertisement (O'Neil served in the Navy), Wrigley gum ad lower left (O'Neil served as first black coach with Cubs, as well as scout). Buck O'Neil had a powerful role in connecting the history of the game, from Rube Foster to Satchel Paige to Jackie Robinson to Ernie Banks to today's stars to tomorrow's superstars. Viewed this way, Buck's influence truly will never end, and the game is so much better for it."
