Yankees Art From Legendary Sports Prints

Former Yankees public relations director Marty Appel, emailed me and wanted me to let you guys know about some great Yankees related lithographs from Legendary Sports Prints.


Both of these are by Bill Purdom. The one on the left shows Mantle at bat with Maris on deck from 1960, and the one on the right shows Ruth at bat with Gehrig on deck from 1929, the first time players wore numbers.

They have many other great Yankees pieces, including this one that has The Babe standing with Negro League legend Josh Gibson. And another one of my personal favorites is this one of Donnie Baseball launching his ALDS homer in 1995 against the Mariners.

I think those would be great gifes for Yankees fans. They are fantastic paintings.

I'd love to buy all of them but I have no money left thanks to this stupid economy.

Sorry to hear that Anon. We're all being hit by it, and the scary part is that this is just the beginning.
