This piece is an example of the 28 paintings I did for Upper Deck's Heroes of Baseball Series in 1993.
As a special event a group of retired players would travel around and play a 3 inning game before a regular season Major League Baseball game. That way the older folks could see the players they remembered and the younger ones could see the players they'd never seen. Everyone attending the game was given one of these 8 1/2" x 11" prints at the turnstile. A portion of the proceeds would go to B.A.T. which assisted retired players.
These paintings are 18" x 24" - oil on unstretched canvas.© Alan Studt
