Dennis Eckersley Hall of Fame Postcard Original Artwork
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,044.00
Original painting of Dennis Eckersley by Dick Perez. Watercolor on board. Signed lower right. 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 2005 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in July when the portraits of Eckersley and Moliter will be replaced by portraits of the 2005 inductees. The painting will be shipped to the winner directly from the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame portraits 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 This is an unpublished Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcard original art. It has not yet been published as a postcard, as Eckersley was elected to the Hall of Fame 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 updated in the future, this is the image of Eckersley which will be used. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,044.00
