Collection of seventeen original Dick Perez baseball artworks produced specifically for inclusion in the book The Immortals: An Art Collection of Baseball's Best (see introduction for more information). Featured is an extraordinary gallery of stars and important figures representing nineteenth-century baseball. Perez has signed all of the paintings on the front in varying locations. Each painting depicts a different Baseball Hall of Fame member and, in keeping with the narrative spirit of the book, most players are pictured "in action."
