Don Drysdale Original Painting by John W. Orth (20”x24”)

Don Drysdale Original Painting by John W. Orth (20”x24”)

One half of the most dominant pitching duo in baseball history, Don Drysdale made a name for himself as an intimidator. His 6'5” frame would cast a long shadow towards homeplate as he unleashed screaming sidearm fastballs mixed with brow-raising brush back pitches. During one stretch of the '68 season he would throw an astounding 58.2 scoreless innings on his way to notching a record six consecutive shutouts. A workhorse throughout his thirteen year career with the Dodgers, he lead the NL in games started from 1962-65 and innings pitched from 1962-64. He wasn't afraid to swing the limber either, Drysdale batted .300 in '65 and is second only to Warren Spahn on the pitcher's all-time homerun list. We offer this exquisite piece of original art by noted artist John W. Orth (D. 1976) featuring Hall of Famer, Don Drysdale in his Dodger uniform. Orth was one of the last artists from the Santa Anna, California area to paint in the style of the Old Masters. His forte was always portraiture of well known persons, as you can well see from this fine example. Some of the artist's most notable subjects included Winston Churchill, Charles Laughton and Albert Einstein. This acrylic masterpiece, worthy of Cooperstown and of the highest quality both in form and condition is beautifully custom framed to 30”x34”, EX-MT.
