Titled Giants - Broncos Classic
, issued in 1987, serigraph numbered "110/375," flawlessly signed in pencil in the lower margin by Phil Simms ("Phil Simms #11 S.B. XXI M.V.P."), Sean Landeta ("Sean Landeta #5 NY Giants"), Lawrence Taylor ("Lawrence Taylor #56 SB XXI XXV Champs"), Harry Carson ("Harry Carson 53 HOF 2006"), Mark Bavaro ("Mark Bavaro #89"), and artist LeRoy Neiman (all grading "10"). Edition limited to 892 total impressions (375 numbered impressions, 375 hors de commerce, 120 artist's proofs, and 22 printer's proofs). This colorful artwork, issued in commemoration of the Giant's victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XXI, pictures a number of key Giants players including quarterback Phil Simms (MVP of the game), Joe Morris, and Mark Bavaro. It is also one of only two LeRoy Neiman serigraphs depicting the New York Giants and the only one to honor a Super Bowl triumph. It must be noted that this serigraph was not issued as a signed piece.
Our consignor spent considerable time and money to obtain the five "key" Giants signatures displayed here, the presence of which superbly highlight its status as the preeminent New York Giants art piece and define it as a modern classic. According to our consignor, this is one of two LeRoy Neiman New York Giants serigraphs he had signed in this manner, with the other remaining in his private collection. While it is theoretically still possible for collectors to obtain these same five signatures on other examples of this serigraph (at great expense in time and money we might add), we have never seen, nor are we aware of, any other signed examples outside of this one and the other owned by our consignor. The serigraph measures 38 x 28.5 inches (image size) and displays a few minor creases in the white border areas as well as a stray ink mark in the right border, all of which can easily be matted out, otherwise in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $823
