This beautifully framed piece features an original piece of watercolor artwork glass-framed in an attractive two inch wide black resin frame with a double mat. The outer dimensions of the framed piece are approximately 17” wide x 24.5” high, although the exact size will vary according to the size of the original piece of art.

At the core of the framed piece is the actual piece of original artwork as painted by the artist on textured 100% rag, water-marked watercolor paper. In many cases the original artwork has handwritten notes in pencil from the artist (be sure to “See the actual artwork without the frame” elsewhere in this website). Simply put, this is beautiful, one-of-a-kind artwork.

The outer mat is a rich textured black acid-free mat with a decorative inset white v-groove, while the inner mat is a complimentary colored acid-free mat reflecting one of the team’s primary colors. The website image of this framed piece shows the mat color that we suggest (Red), but since each piece is custom framed, we are happy to use whatever color mat you wish (depending on availability) – our standard mat colors are:

Light Blue / Dark Blue / Brown / Maroon (close to brown) / White / Silver / Gold / Yellow (bright yellow) / Green (dark green) / Orange / Purple / Red (bright red, somewhat close to PMS 186)

Beneath the artwork is a silver plate with black text describing the original artwork. The text for this piece will read:

This original, one-of-a-kind watercolor painting of the 2004 Boston Red Sox uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Boston Red Sox uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Boston Red Sox products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Nola McConnan for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd. 2004 was a World Series winning season for the Boston Red Sox.

Beneath the silver plate is a 3” x 9” reproduction of a well known, best-selling print that celebrates the history of the team. The print beautifully illustrates the chronological evolution of the team’s uniform and shows you how the original art was used in the creation of this print. If you look closely, you will see that the print features the actual artwork being offered for sale. The 3” x 9” print looks like this:

The piece is framed with an extremely high quality framing glass. We have used this glass style for many years with excellent results.

Each framed piece also comes with a two page letter signed by Scott Sillcox describing the history behind the art. If there was an extra-special story about your piece of art, that story will be included in the letter. When you receive your framed piece, you should find the letter lightly attached to the front of the framed piece.

If you have any questions, at any time, about the actual artwork or about any of the artist’s handwritten notes on the artwork, I would love to tell you about them. Simply email me, Scott Sillcox, at and I will tell you everything I can about your original piece of art.

At long last, next year has arrived!The curse of the Bambino has been lifted!After 86 years, long-suffering Red Sox fans can now die in peace, as their beloved Red Sox are 2004 World Series Champions.The battle for baseball supremacy began in the off season when the Red Sox and Yankees both looked to bolster their offensive attacks by acquiring AL MVP Alex Rodriguez, who no longer fit into the Texas Rangers plans. The Yankees eventually won that battle when Yankees GM Brian Cashman made the deal with the Rangers. So, the Red Sox countered with the acquisition of veteran RHP Curt Schilling from the Arizona Diamondbacks.During the regular season the Sox and Yanks met 19 times with Boston winning the series 11-8.  You could tell this long-time rivalry was hitting its peak as every game between these two clubs felt like a playoff game, especially a midseason game at Fenway, when the Sox Bronson Arroyo hit the Yankees Rodriguez with a pitch that ignited a bench-clearing brawl.The two teams advanced to the playoffs. The Yankees won the AL East for the 7th straight time with a 101-67 record. The Bosox claimed the AL Wild Card berth with a 95-67 record. Both teams dispatched their ALDS opponents; the Yanks beat the Twins 3 games to 1, the Bosox swept the Angels in three games. Once again their paths would cross in the ALCS.The Yankees won the first three games of the series and no team in baseball history has battled back from a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs. Only an idiot would think they could come back after falling behind three games to none. But after nicknaming themselves as a bunch of idiots, the Sox were up for the task.  After trailing most of game 4, the Sox tied the game and then won it on a 12th inning homer by David Ortiz, 6-4. Their roll continued as they won Game 5, 5-4 in extra innings and Game 6, 4-2, forcing a seventh and deciding game.The backto-back losses really seemed to rattle the battle-tested Yankees.  Normally when they led going into the final inning they won. P Mariano Rivera was almost automatic coming out of the bullpen to close games. But formally invincible Rivera blew saves in games 4 and 5 leading to extra inning victories for the Sox.  And if that wasn't inspiration enough, Curt Schilling, who many thought was too injured to participate in the series took the mound with his tendons stitched to his ankle as blood was visible through his sock on a rainy night in the Bronx in Game 6. He was masterful, throwing 6 scoreless innings, allowing just one run in seven innings of work.  The Sox then put the hammer down on a stunned Yankees team and won game seven 10-3.  It was off to the World Series for the first time since 1986 - and best of all for Red Sox Nation, it was at the expense of the Yankees in unprecedented come-from-behind fashion.After pulling off the most unlikely comeback against the hated NY Yankees the Red Sox seemed to be a team that was not to be denied. Since the American League won the All Star game the Red Sox got ready to host the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series.The Cards were a modern-day murderers row with heavy hitters like Albert Pujols, Jim Edmonds and Scott Rolen all finishing the season with over 100 RBI (123,124, 111 respectively) and they added 1997 NL MVP Larry Walker mid-way though the season to their lineup as if they needed more power.This was shaping up to be a classic World Series.The opening game was a see-saw affair that saw the Bean-towners pull off an 11-9 win. In Game 2 Curt Schilling and his surgically repaired foot shut out the Cards for 6 innings as the Bosox took the contest 6-2.The Series shifted to St. Louis for games 3 and 4. But too bad for the Cards the Red Sox were rolling. Playing in front of a packed Busch Stadium, the Red Sox took Game 3, 4-1. Pedro Martinez stymied the Cards throwing 7 shutout innings. Game 4 was more of the same as those daunting St. Louis sluggers were tamed by Derek Lowe who shut them out for 7 innings as well. The end result was a 3-0 win and a four-game sweep for the AL Champs- their first World Series championship since 1918!  - And the Series MVP? None other than the biggest idiot of all, fan favourite, Manny Ramirez, who batted .412 in the World Series (he also batted a solid .300 in the ALCS).When the Red Sox won the World Series they were in St. Louis wearing their road uniforms like the one shown here. This road uniform is grey and features the city name written across the chest. Note also that on this uniform the Red Sox use red lettering, in the Red Sox-type font, to spell Boston. Please note also that the uniform features red accent trim on the sleeves and down the side of the leg.
