Dick Perez Original Artwork and Print Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,410
Collection of three original artworks and one limited-edition print by noted baseball artist Dick Perez. The highlight of this grouping are two extraordinary original paintings that were used as background illustrations in the companion booklet issued with the 1989 Perez-Steele Celebration postcard set. The first pictures a generic nineteenth-century baseball scene of a batter and catcher that was used on the page featuring the cards of Aaron, Aparicio, Banks, and Bell. The second painting depicts an illustration of an eagle and American flag that was used on the page featuring the cards of Doerr, Ferrell, Gehringer, and Gomez. Each watercolor-on-board artwork measures approximately 10 x 14 inches and is housed in an exquisite antique wood frame for optimal display. (It should be noted that the antique frames, measuring 22 x 25 inches and 18.5 x 23 inches, respectively, are extremely valuable themselves and were obtained by our consignor at considerable expense.) The remaining two pieces in the collection consist of the following: 1) Original oil-on-canvas artwork of a nineteenth-century game-in-progress scene; signed by Perez in the lower right. 18 x 12 inches; framed to total dimensions of 22 x 16 inches. 2) Limited-edition print, titled Schoolboys at Play - Late for Dinner , numbered "50/200" and signed by Perez in the lower left. 20 x 16 inches (image area); matted and framed to total dimensions of 32.5 x 29 inches. Total: 4 items (three original artworks plus one limited-edition print). Please Note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, shipping costs (depending on where it is sent and its method of shipping) may be substantial. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,410
