Babe Ruth Limited-Edition LeRoy Neiman Serigraph - Printer's Proof
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,233
Titled The Babe , issued in 1995, serigraph numbered "PP 5/6" (printer's proof), signed in pencil by Neiman (grading "10") in the lower margin. Edition limited to 341 total impressions (285 numbered impressions, 50 artist's proofs, and 6 printer's proofs). Stark contrasts highlight this classic artwork of the legendary "Sultan of Swat." The brilliant white hue of Ruth's pinstriped uniform is masterfully juxtaposed against the dark background colors, thereby giving the piece an almost ethereal quality. Neiman created this iconic image of Ruth in 1995 as a special tribute to the much-celebrated 100th anniversary of Ruth's birth. The serigraph measures 18 x 23.5 inches (image area) and is in Near Mint condition. Matted (by means of tape on the reverse) to total dimensions of 27.5 x 34 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,233
