As the baseball world became caught up in the 1998 home run chase, nobody thought to wonder why a single season standard that had stood unchallenged for 36 years was suddenly being shattered by two players. Renowned artist LeRoy Neiman was not immune to the hype and began composition of this painting to commemorate Mark McGwire’s 70 home run effort. This limited edition (198/509) print portrays the muscular Cardinal slugger and is signed by both subject and artist. Measuring 32-1/2 x 47” with a deckled right border, the colorful piece was completed by Neiman over a course that spanned McGwire’s 55th and 70th home runs that year. The lower border is signed in graphite pencil by both Neiman (“9” strength) and McGwire (“8-9” strength) with the latter having inscribed “70.” Auction LOA from JSA
