Description

Back in April, emerging artist Kirk Timmons enjoyed his world premiere with us as he debuted 8 of his unique original number artworks that had been used for prints currently sold on MLB team websites. Now Timmons returns with a larger, more ambitious creation paying homage to the Mick’s immortal legacy. Six career-spanning portraits capture Mantle up close and personal from both sides of the plate, accented by the full-color Yankee Stadium batting circle and the perfect pinstriped background. Rendered on art board, this 16x22, ink-and-gouache piece is signed by Timmons. "My dad taught me to switch-hit," Mantle once said. "He and my grandfather, who was left-handed, pitched to me every day after school in the backyard. I batted lefty against my dad and righty against my granddad."
