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 2003 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.

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.

Start spreading the news; the New York Yankees are 100 years old! In 2003, baseball's most recognizable team celebrated its 100th anniversary in New York (the franchise actually began in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles, but transferred to New York in 1903 where for their first 10 years they were known as the Highlanders).The team, despite not having won a World Series since 2000, was still the class of the American League winning 101 games giving them the best record in the Junior Loop.Manager Joe Torre, who was now in his 8th season with the Pinstripers, provided the team with strong leadership from the dugout. On field, up the middle of the diamond, veterans C Jorge Posada, SS Derek Jeter and CF Bernie Williams anchored the team defensively. The Yanks also expanded their global appeal in 2003 by signing Japanese superstar Hideki Matsui. In his first season in the Major League's Matsui lived up to his hype by hitting .287 with 16 home runs and 106 RBI.  On the mound Roger Clemens cemented his place among the greatest pitchers of all-time by collecting his 4,000th career strike out and 300th win. The Yanks would go on to win their 6th straight AL East title.In the postseason the Yanks played the Minnesota Twins in the ALDS and sent them home in four games, winning the series 3 games to 1. In the ALCS it would be high drama as the Yanks met up with long-time rivals Boston. The Yanks and Bosox would trade victories leaving the series tied 3-3 after six games. Game seven, played at Yankee Stadium, would go into extra innings after Pedro Martinez squandered an 8th inning lead. In the 11th inning NY 3B Aaron Boone crushed the first pitch he saw off Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield. The Yanks were off to the World Series after claiming their 39th American League pennant.The World Series would be a letdown for Yankee fans as they lost to the Florida Marlins 4 games to 2. On paper the Yanks were pegged to win their 27th World Series championship, but the Marlins were making a habit of proving people wrong all postseason and the World Series would be no different.The Yanks lost game 1 in the Bronx 3-2. They bounced back with a convincing 6-1 win in game 2.  After the Series shifted to Miami the Yankees won Game 3, 6-1 again, behind a solid pitching effort from Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera. Roger Clemens pitched Game 4 and gave up 3 runs in the 1st. They would be the only runs he would give up until he was lifted from the game in the 8th. His teammates picked him up by tying the game with 2 runs in the 9th. The Marlins SS Alex Gonzales would hit a game-winning homerun in the 12th inning off reliever Jeff Weaver to tie the Series 2-2. In Game 5, New York made a late inning comeback attempt that fell short as they lost the game 6-4. The teams would return to New York with the Marlins leading the Series 3-2. With their backs to the wall the Yanks sent LHP Andy Pettitte to the mound. Pettitte pitched well, keeping his team in the game, only giving up single runs in the 5th and 6th. But Josh Beckett pitch an even better game for the Marlins, throwing a complete-game shutout to win the World Series 4 games to 2. Beckett was named Series MVP.In 2003 the Yankees wore a patch celebrating their 100th Anniversary on the left sleeve of their home pinstriped uniform.
