1980’s Perez Original Water Color 16×20 Artwork Cubs-Frank Chance From Barry Halper

Three main reasons, keep the value of these Perez Steele originals valuable.

First is significance: In 1902 the franchise became known as the Chicago Cubs. During this period, which has become known as baseball’s dead-ball era, three Cub infielders; Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance were made famous by a double-play combination. Immortalized in this watercolor is this moment in time.

Second is scarcity. Frank and Peggy Steele and Dick Perez founded Perez-Steele Galleries in 1979. Since that time the company has produced the most famous and cherished continuing sports art cards sets in the hobby. They range from the eminent set that celebrates the members of Baseball’s Hall of Fame, and paid homage to the card designs of the 1800s and early 1900s, to the Diamond Kings that Perez painted over 15 years for the Leaf-Donruss Company.

Third is availability. Perez-Steele inventory, numbered card sets of Hall of Fame Postcards, Celebration and Great Moments have been sold out for many years and are available only on the secondary market. Masterworks is still available from Perez-Steele Galleries, but in a limited number. Only a few original paintings from these works are available.

This is the original water color artwork from Perez, which comes from the Barry Halper collection. There are few things left that are so dearly cherished in our lifetime and art is still one of them. Incredibly valuable, these scarcities must go into a precious prized collection. Keep these precious artifacts preserved. Preservation is the key for these gems. There are three in the set and they are being sold individually.
