Titled Quarterback of the 80's , issued in 1990, serigraph numbered "240/250," flawlessly signed in pencil in the lower margin by LeRoy Neiman (grading "10"). Edition limited in number to 309 total impressions (250 numbered impressions, 50 artist's proofs, and 9 printer's proofs). While Neiman has created thirty football-related serigraphs over the years, very few have been dedicated to specific players: this is one of just five that honors an individual player (the vast majority are game scenes). Montana was certainly worthy of Neiman's attention at the time this piece was issued, having just won back-to-back Super Bowl titles with the San Francisco 49ers. In total, Montana won four World Championships with the 49ers during the 1980s, a feat which more than justified his title as the "Quarterback of the 80's." Montana was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. The serigraph measures 14 x 26.5 inches (image area) and displays remnants of mounting tape along the top edge on the reverse; otherwise in Mint condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175
