Original mixed media on canvas artwork of Sandy Koufax by world-renowned sports artist Arthur K. Miller. Signed by the artist along the base. The artwork, which has been designed in the style of a 1951 Bowman baseball card, is one from an ongoing series of Miller's that he titles "Sports Cards That Never Were." Adding to the aesthetic appeal of this piece is the fact that Miller has intentionally distressed the canvas to give it a vintage "antique" quality. The artwork (25.75 x 39.5 inches), which is in Mint condition, has attached hooks on the reverse so that it can be hung freely, or, if desired, it can also be easily framed. In addition to his signature on the front, Miller has also signed, dated, "2017," and titled the piece, "A Baseball Card That Never Was: Sandy Koufax (1951 Bowman)" on the reverse. Arthur K.
