Need Art?

I'm not sure how many Yankee fans out there are familiar with the name Marty Appel. Marty was the PR Director for the New York Yankees. You've probably seen him on various episodes of Yankeeography or some other YES programming. At least I think he was in some Yankeeography episodes. Anyway, he knows his stuff and he wanted to share something that he thought might be of interest to Yankees fans, especially with the holiday shopping season upon us.

Legendary Sports Prints sells top quality art at reasonable prices. There are 2 pieces in particular that Marty thought might be of interest. 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 Maris/Mantle one shows the left field grandstand, and the Ruth/Gehrig one the right field grandstand. They are beautiful pieces and might be worth checking out.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,
