1988 Ron Lewis "500 Home Run Club" Signed Lithograph
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,762.50
Classic 1988 limited-edition signed lithograph of the eleven then-living members of the elite 500 Home Run Club, by renowned sports artist Ron Lewis, is beautifully signed by Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, Harmon Killebrew, Reggie Jackson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mike Schmidt, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, and Willie McCovey. Each signatures is a near flawless “10” in blue sharpie. The lithograph is also signed by the artist, Ron Lewis, in blue marker and is hand-numbered 414/1000. This was a very elaborate, successful, and ground-breaking project when produced in conjunction with the now legendary Atlantic City show in 1988 at which these greats gathered. Many consider this signed lithograph the single best and most well conceived limited-edition signed item ever created. This lithograph is not to be confused with smaller, lower-quality mass-produced posters of this same image. In addition to the infinitely superior quality and very limited print run of the lithographs, the authenticity of the signatures on the lithographic prints is always a certainty. Many collectors are not aware of the tremendous distinction between the signed limited-edition lithographic art prints and the posters. As time passes, no doubt the lithographs will become all the more appreciated by knowledgeable collectors. The lithograph measures 22.5 x 37 inches, and is beautifully matted and framed to total dimensions of 48 x 32 inches. Please note: due to the size and/or weight of this item, the shipping charges for this lot (depending on where it is sent and method of shipping) may be substantial. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,762.50
