Alex Rodriguez Signed Limited-Edition Charles Fazzino 3D Serigraph - 2008 All-Star Game
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,175
Titled An All-Star Tribute to Yankee Stadium , issued in 2008, numbered "1/26 PR" (premier edition), and signed in pencil by both Alex Rodriguez and artist Charles Fazzino in the lower margin. In addition to simply signing the piece, Rodriguez has also added the following inscription: "2008 All-Star Game/Leading Vote Getter." The fact that Rodriguez has signed this piece makes it a very significant example of this highly prized Fazzino 3D serigraph. This piece was not originally issued as a Rodriguez signed piece. Our consignor invested considerable time and money in acquiring Rodriguez's signature on it and, to the best of our knowledge, it is the only example signed by Rodriguez in this manner. Charles Fazzino is a world renowned pop artist who is best known today for his stunning 3D serigraphs. All of Fazzino's 3D serigraphs are meticulously pieced together by the artist and then hand embellished with the application of acrylic paint glitter and oftentimes crystals. This stunning artwork pays homage to baseball's most famous venue, Yankee Stadium, as it played host to its fourth and final Major League All-Star Game during its final season. The stadium's rich history is brought to life by numerous signs held by fans evoking memories of past glories, while vignettes of famous Yankee players and memorable moments surround the old park. The future of the Yankees is seen in the upper right corner, where a depiction of the new Yankee Stadium hovers over the landscape. This is a spectacular and novel artwork that truly must be seen in person to fully appreciate its remarkable aesthetics. The serigraph measures 34 x 28 inches (image size) and displays two diagonal creases (each approximately 10 inches in length) in the upper and lower left corners, respectively; otherwise in Near Mint condition. This piece was commissioned by Major League Baseball and an official MLB licensing hologram appears along the lower margin.

Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,175
