This beautifully framed piece features an two pieces of original, one-of-a-kind artwork. Both images are glass-framed in an attractive two inch wide black resin frame with a double mat. The outer dimensions of the framed piece are approximately 28” wide x 24.5” high, although the exact size will vary according to the size of the original 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 (Medium Blue), 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:

These two original watercolor paintings of the 2000 New York Yankees uniform are the two original pieces of artwork that were used in the creation of this New York Yankees uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other New York Yankees products that have been sold across North America. The painting on the left was the initial piece of artwork used, while the artwork on the right was its eventual replacement. 2000 was a World Series winning season for the New York Yankees.

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. We package every piece very carefully in a double layer of bubble wrap and a rigid double-wall cardboard package to avoid breakage at any point during the shipping process, but if damage does occur, we will gladly repair, replace or refund. Please note that all of our products come with a 90 day 100% satisfaction guarantee.

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. The artists and I spent well over ten years of our lives creating these pieces of original artwork, and in many cases there are stories I can tell you about your actual piece of artwork that might add an extra element of interest in your one-of-a-kind purchase.

The New York Yankees were the most successful baseball franchise of the 20th century (25 World Series Championships in 100 tries) and at the start of the 21st century they looked to continue that trend with win #26.  After winning 98 games and claiming the AL East crown by 4 games in 1999, the 2000 Bronx Bombers struggled down the stretch losing 6 straight to the Devil Rays, and Orioles. They managed to hold on to the division lead and win the AL East by 2 games over the Boston Red Sox with an 87-74 record.The Yanks met the AL West winners, Oakland As, in the divisional round of the playoffs. They got off to a slow start losing game one in Oakland 5-3. The Yanks would regroup and win the best-of-five series in five games, despite the fact that their ace, Roger Clemens lost games 1 and 4.In the next round they faced the Seattle Mariners for the for the American League Championship. Once again they started slowly losing to the Mariners 2-0. But once again they would rebound winning games 2, 3, 4 and 6 to clinch the series and their 37th American League pennant.The Yankees were joined in the World Series by their cross-town rival Mets in what would be the first Subway Series in 44 years. The last Subway Series took place in 1956 when the Yanks played the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Bronx Bombers won that series in seven games.In the 2000 World Series the Yankees would not be haunted by a slow start, taking Game One. They would win again in Game Two, extending their World Series winning streak to a record 14 games. The Yankees World Series roll would come to an end at Shea Stadium in Game 3 where the Mets won 4-2. The Yanks would bounce back immediately in Game 4 as Derek Jeter led things off with a homerun. The Yankees bullpen held off the feisty Mets for a 3-2 win and a 3-1 series lead.The Yankees would then go on to win their 26th World Championship after Luis Sojo's single up the middle scored 2 runs in the top of the 9th of Game 5 to secure a victory. This series will be best remembered as the series when Roger Clemens threw a piece of Mike Piazzas broken bat back at him, after it was shattered by Clemens pitch. The Rocket, caught up in the excitement of the game, claimed he thought he was throwing a ball.The Yankees were on the road at Shea Stadium when they won their 26th World Series championship. And despite being in their hometown they were nattily attired in their traditional road grey uniforms, like the one seen on our poster representing the year 2000. Tradition is a word that is often used when describing the NY Yankees.  The tradition of simplicity with the road uniform continues here with the only real distinguishing mark on the outfit are the words NEW YORK spelled out in dark, dark blue block letters across the front of the jersey.One other note about this uniform: If you look closely on the right shoulder you'll see a World Series patch. It is our belief that the custom of both teams wearing a year-specific World Series patch began in 1987 and has continued ever since.  As noted earlier, MLB uses a different patch each year on the World Series participants uniforms. The patch design changes from year to year, but it always features the World Series year and the words World Series.
