    1992 Larry Bird Leroy Neiman Original Painting - Presented to Celtics Staff Photographer. Leroy Neiman is the artist as to which all other sports impressionists are compared to. Neiman was different than virtually every other painter of his time and mixed colors and captured every day life like nobody else. There was no subject off limits to the all-encompassing talents of the mustachioed one.

    Neiman's original works of art have become some of the most treasured collectibles given he didn't just create paintings for anyone. Heritage Auctions is proud to present this 13.5x22" acrylic on board creation which features original artwork done by Neiman. Boston Celtics and Red Sox staff photographer Steve Lipofsky was given this Neiman Larry Bird original as a token of appreciation from the famous artist. Lipofsky took the Bird photo originally, and with a few brushes of his capable hand Neiman formed this. Neiman autographed this offering "To Steve Lipofsky after your photo of Larry Bird" in black ink and signed and dated in pencil. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
