Lance Richbourg Jr. is a very talented baseball artist. His father just happened to be a Florida Gator baseball player and became the first UF athlete to play professional sports in 1921. I couldn't find a website for the artist himself, but here's a link to a site that sells prints of his work.

There is actually a Sports Art museum in Alabama called The American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA).

Each year they recognize a top "Sports" artist. It is a great eclectic collection so there is something for everyone. Art is so subjective so like joelsabi who finds Peter Max cheesy; however, he likes Dick Perez or perhaps may like another photo realistic artist.

http://www.asama.org/awards/sportArtists/index.html

Also in this next Huggins and Scott auction they have several pages dedicated to sports art. I consigned 5 pieces of art to them since they were doing so much art. Probably some good bargains to be had!

thanks suave,

i took that photo from his website. maybe he drew something similar before. that reverential pose is my favorite shot of his.

anyone know if there a famous photo of clemente that served as the inspiration of this artwork?

Very well put when it comes to art. It is very subjective and not everyones taste runs in the same vein. I only have one piece, it was done by an artist out of Denver whos name is Rob Wood. I've always wanted a true piece of art and his was affordable enough so I could have one. His work is along the lines of Peter Max I believe. I would post a pic, but the last time I posted it on a board everyone told me they hated it. But that's ok, I like it. And last month I was able to get it signed by the athlete, so now I really love it.

A few weeks ago, SCD's website had art of some lady from Canada. It was amazing. I saved a pic, here is a copy of it. If I remember correctly this was done with pencil.

Another amazinf artist is Stephen Holland- his work is a bit pricey but I think worth it if you have a sports memorabilia room to put one in.

I recommend looking up these pieces he did.

Alex Rodriguez
Babe Ruth
Albert Pujols
Lou Gherig
Nolan Ryan
Michael Jordan
Tiger Woods
Roger Clemens
Sandy Koufax
