Friend of WasWatching.com Marty Appel, sent me a heads-up on something cool recently. As Marty shared:
Legendary Sports Prints sells top quality art at reasonable prices; they have a lot of Yankee material, but two in particular got my attention.
Both are by Bill Purdom. One shows Mantle at bat with Maris on deck from 1960, and the other Ruth at bat with Gehrig on deck from 1929, the first time players wore numbers. The Mantle/Maris one shows the left field grandstand, and the Ruth/Gehrig one the right field grandstand. Side by side, they make a beautiful matched set. Very cool holiday gifts for Yankee fans.
I checked these out and Marty is correct. There’s also one featured where Thurman Munson is giving Carlton Fisk “the look.” Priceless. Click here to check them out for yourself.
