Dick Perez The Immortals Original Artwork Collection - "The Modern Era - 1980-2010" (15)
Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $7,110
Collection of fifteen original Dick Perez baseball artworks produced specifically for inclusion in the book The Immortals: An Art Collection of Baseball's Best (see introduction for more information), with the exception of one. Featured is an extraordinary gallery of stars and important figures representing the 1980-2010 era. Perez has signed all of the paintings on the front in varying locations. Each painting depicts a different Baseball Hall of Fame member and, in keeping with the narrative spirit of the book, most players are pictured "in action." (Perez took the liberty of including Mariano Rivera in the book since his future Hall of Fame induction is all but guaranteed by his accomplishments.) All of the paintings offered here are featured in the chapter "The Modern Era" and are exclusive to the book; they have been published nowhere else with the exception of Tony Gwynn (the Gwynn painting was published for use by Gwynn's agent in a small-scale marketing venture). The collection is comprised of the following (all measurements are in inches): 1) Wade Boggs; 20 x 16; oil on panel. 2) Roberto Alomar; 18 x 14; oil on canvas. 3) Phil Niekro; 12 x 16; watercolor on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 4) Paul Molitor; 12 x 16; oil on panel. 5) Jim Rice; 16 x 20; oil on panel. 6) Robin Yount; 16 x 20; acrylic on canvas panel. 7) Eddie Murray; 20 x 16; oil on panel. 8) Andre Dawson; 20 x 16; oil on panel. 9) Mariano Rivera; 10 x 10; gouache on board. 10) Bert Blyleven; 18 x14; oil on canvas. 11) Tony Gwynn; 18 x 36; oil on canvas. 12) Ryne Sandberg; 12 x 24; oil on canvas panel. 13) Dave Winfield; 12 x 24; oil on canvas. 14) Cal Ripken Jr.; 10 x 20; oil on canvas. 15) Gary Carter; 18 x18; oil on canvas.
