Limited-Edition Charles Fazzino 3D Giclee - Super Bowl XLII: Phoenix - Signed by Eli Manning and Fourteen O
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,896
Titled Super Bowl XLII: Phoenix, issued in 2008, numbered "10/15 PR" (premium edition), and signed in pencil (grading "10") by artist Charles Fazzino, Eli Manning, David Tyree, Ahmad Bradshaw, Plaxico Burress, and Amani Toomer along the bottom margin and Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck, Barry Cofield, Jay Alford, Jeff Feagles, Domenick Hixon, Osi Umenyiora, Brandon Jacobs, Kevin Boss, and Steve Smith along the top margin. It should be noted that this piece was not originally issued signed by members of the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. Our consignor invested considerable time and money in acquiring those signatures and, to the best of our knowledge, this is the only example of this distinctive Fazzino giclee signed in such a manner. Adding to its appeal is the fact that this is an extremely rare premium edition, which is much larger (22 x 29.5 inches) than both the numbered and deluxe editions (each of which measure 13 x 16 inches). Charles Fazzino is a world-renowned pop artist who is best known today for his stunning 3D giclees. All of Fazzino's 3D artworks are meticulously pieced together by the artist and then hand embellished with the application of acrylic paint glitter and oftentimes crystals. This spectacular artwork pays homage to Super Bowl XLII, which witnessed one of the most stunning upsets in sports history. The Giants defeated the unbeaten New England Patriots 17-14 to cap an amazing season that saw them become the first NFC Wild Card team to win a Super Bowl Championship. Like all of Fazzino's 3D artworks, this is a spectacular and novel piece that truly must be seen in person to fully appreciate its remarkable aesthetics. It is also one of the finest New York Giants-signed Super Bowl commemorative display pieces extant. The giclee measures 22 x 29.5 inches (image size) and has been framed in a shadowbox display to total dimensions of 49 x 42.5 x 2.5 inches. In apparent Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,896
