Framed Ty Cobb giclee print
[ View larger image ]
Ty Cobb may have been the greatest baseball player to ever put on spikes. He was surely one of the most feared to wear them, as he supposedly sharpened his cleats before each game so that he could spike his opponents as he slid into a base. This vibrant giclée print from renowned sports artist Bill Purdom captures the Georgia Peach in his trademark, all-out style.

Exactingly reproduced from the artist's original painting, Ty Cobb is shown sliding hard into third base against the New York Highlanders at Hilltop Park, where the Yankees played before they became the Yankees. The scene depicted is a vintage one, when players dressed in flannel and umpires to the nines, games were played in ballparks built into neighborhoods, and the bases were essentially bags.

This vivid action shot of Ty stealing third captures one of the game's all-time greats when the professional game was still in its relative infancy. It should be treasured by all fans of the Georgia-born and bred Cobb, those who follow his Detroit Tigers, and those who love our national pastime.

Available in two sizes, each Ty on Third giclée is printed on canvas and can be ordered with or without a wood frame. The standard sized giclée is limited in edition to 300 prints, each numbered and containing the artist's signature. The mini giclée is an open edition.

What is a Giclée print?

A giclée is a fine art print made from a digital source using a specialized ink-jet printer capable of producing incredibly detailed prints. Superior to traditional lithographs, giclée prints have all the tonalities and hues of the original painting and no visible dot screen patterns. Made using archival quality inks, the giclée printing process allows for better color accuracy than other means of fine art reproduction. Because their colors are vibrant and details so crisp, giclées are now commonly found in museums and galleries as they are often indistinguishable from the original painting. The giclée of Tiger great Ty Cobb is printed on canvas, which will not crease and is more durable than traditional fine art paper.
