Hobrecht Sports Art offers a fine art giclée edition print, printed on high quality archival canvas with archival ink, based on Dave Hobrechts original charcoal painting of all-time great New York Yankees star and baseball Hall of Famer, Mickey Mantle in his 1951 rookie season.
Mantle is largely considered the greatest switch hitter in Major League history. The Mick entered the league in 1951, the same year as Willie Mays, and both were the original five-tool players, hitting for average and power, with speed, a great arm and defensive range in centerfield. In an 18-year career cut short by injuries, Mantle still managed to sock 536 HRs, 2415 Hits and 1509 RBI with career averages of .291, .421 OBP and .557 slugging.
The canvas prints are stretched and mounted onto wooden frames with hardware included, and are ready to hang. All prints are made and shipped directly from the Hobrecht Sports Art Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. The Medium and Large prints are signed and numbered by the artist, Dave Hobrecht.
