Baseball Pilgrimages
Where the pursuit of baseball never ends.
[Site Map]

The most famous stadium in American sports history (and the first structure to ever be called a "stadium") was built in just 284 days. Yankee Stadium opened its gates to the public on April 18, 1923 and renowned sports artist Al Sorenson captures the ballpark as it appeared on that inaugural Opening Day in this vibrant giclée print.

Exactingly reproduced from the artist's original acrylic painting, in rich detail you can see the ceremonial bunting hanging from the Stadium's original facade, topped by American flags flapping in the breeze.

Fans are shown waiting on the plaza in the game day dress of the era. A crowd of 74,200 showed up at the The House That Ruth Built to see the Bambino christen his park with a three-run homer, the difference in the Yankees' 4-1 win over the Red Sox.

From that first opening day until the last game played there on September 21, 2008, Yankee Stadium was home to greatness. Many legends graced the hallowed grounds of the Bronx ballpark, which hosted 26 world championship teams and 37 World Series. Countless memories were made there, the first of which is so eloquently depicted in this giclée, which has as timeless an appeal as the sport the Stadium hosted for over eight decades.

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 Yankee Stadium is printed on canvas, which will not crease and is more durable than traditional fine art paper.
