Bill Purdom is destined to be one of the most remembered sports artists of all time. His work has already been enshrined for all of eternity in the Baseball Hall of Fame's permanent collection, with 74 of his limited edition lithographs currently displayed in Cooperstown. His renowned work relates the most captivating and monumental events in the history of all sports and he has painted more artwork for cards than any artist in Topps history. Offered are 80 amazing original paintings from Bill Purdom's personal collection. The hugely popular set of cards commemorating the great #3, Dale Earnhardt, was done for QVC and Dale Earnhardt Enterprises (it sold 18,000 sets in 15 minutes). To give you an idea of how great this card set is, Dale Earnhardt Jr. presented this set on QVC and actually cried on the air while viewing the images. This is the first painted set of NASCAR, as well as the first officially licensed and sanctioned card set of the life of NASCAR's greatest driver of all time. Each piece of artwork (numbered by hand, 1-80) is masterfully created by one of the greatest minds in the field of sports art. Most measure approx. 5x7", with a few that are larger (8x10").
