Ryne Sandberg Perez-Steele Hall of Fame Postcard Artwork
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $3,190.00
Original painting of Ryne Sandberg by Dick Perez, the official artist of the Hall of Fame. Watercolor on board. Signed lower left. 15 x 20 inches. This artwork is currently on display at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. Every year the official portraits by Dick Perez of the newly elected Hall of Famers are displayed for the entire year at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, until replaced by portraits of new inductees the following year. This painting will not be sent to the winning bidder until after the 2006 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in July when the portraits of Boggs and Sandberg will be replaced by portraits of the 2006 inductees. The Hall of Fame portraits by Dick Perez are the very same ones used in the Perez-Steele Hall of Fame art postcard series. This is an unpublished Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcard original artwork. It has not yet been published as a postcard, as Sandberg was elected to the Hall after Perez-Steele Galleries' last series update in 2001. Though Perez-Steele Galleries is no longer publishing, if the Hall of Fame postcard series is ever updated in the future, this is the image of Sandberg which will be used. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $3,190.00
