The ultimate Evan Longoria collectibleFebruary 25, 2009 at 3:28 pm | Posted in Random | 3 Comments
Check out this amazing oil painting of Evan Longoria, entitled “Unleashed” from artist Justyn Farano:
It was on display at Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s Baseball Dinner at Tropicana Field last night. The painting was personally autographed by Longoria with “08 ROY”. This would look absolutely amazing in my living room, but my wife would never go for it. The artist’s web page has more details about the painting, but it says “Call for Pricing”. I think it’s safe to assume that it’s well out of my price range.
The same artist also has done paintings of many other athletes, including several members of the Boston Red Sox, and you can check them out here. I think that they all look great. These paintings definitely blows Topps sketch cards out of the water, don’t they?
And speaking of sketch cards – the “sketches” on most of the cards that I’ve seen look horrible. I’ve seen better artistic quality in some high school art classes…
