    Description

    1969 Joe Namath Original Artwork by LeRoy Neiman. Arguably the most famous visual artist living today, and unquestionably the greatest name in the field of sports art, LeRoy Neiman characteristically employs a frenetic, Impressionistic style to capture the chaos of athletic competition. But here he turns his attention to a quieter moment, finding the defending World Champion quarterback resting his damaged legs after a twenty-three to seventeen win over the Boston Patriots at Shea Stadium. The soulful watercolor work measures 13x16" on artist's paper and is signed and notated at the bottom margin by the artist. A simple matting and framing job extends the final dimensions to 18x21". Though Neiman continues to paint as he approaches his ninetieth birthday, those creations from earlier decades remain even more highly prized, and this forty-year old study of the era's most charismatic football star certainly deserves added attention.

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