This enormous limited-edition sports lithograph, created in 1997 by artist George Bungarda, pays homage to the "Super Heroes of Sports" and has been signed by a total of sixty-nine immortals in the field of baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Each of the athletes has signed the lithograph in blue Sharpie ("10") within his respective sport panel. Signed by the artist in the lower right, and hand numbered "HC 45/50" in the lower left.
