1955 Baseball Opening Day Artwork by Burris Jenkins, Jr (10x19")
A clever and visually appealing rendering, by New York’s legendary sports artist Burris Jenkins, Jr., heralds the arrival of another Opening Day. Entitled “ Diamond Dust”, it mixes ominous Cold War images, the billowing baseball cloud and the “fallout” of baseball players, with the optimism that a new baseball season evokes. The players raining down over the skyline of Manhattan have names, and these names recall a time when New York City had three major league teams, each loaded with marquee players. Mantle, Berra, Snider, Reese, Robinson, Mays and Thompson. They’re all here from the Golden Age of NYC Baseball, from the historic year those Bums won it all. NRMT condition.
