    The Christopher Paluso Original Art Collection

    With a skill and humanity reminiscent of the great Saturday Evening Post artist Norman Rockwell, celebrated sports artist Christopher Paluso does far more than simply capture his famous subjects with photographic realism. His years of training and experience, and his innate gift for his craft allow him to evoke something deeper in the sports heroes he depicts, a gift that has brought him raves from the athletic world and beyond. Paluso's artwork has been featured on covers of All-Star Game programs, sports magazines, book illustrations, Fotoballs and commemorative plates. He is the official artist of the San Diego Hall of Champions, the San Diego Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame, the Hawthorn Race Course Jockey Hall of Fame, and the Missouri Valley Conference Hall of Fame. His artwork, such as those listed below, is among the most sought after of all such works in the hobby. We are pleased to present this fine assortment of Paluso's best works, consigned directly by the artist.



    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.

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