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 (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:

This original, one-of-a-kind watercolor painting of the 2009 New York Yankees uniform is the original artwork that was 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. This original piece of art was painted by artist Nola McConnan for Heritage Sports Art Inc.  2009 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:

Partly because of their record, and partly because of their ballpark, the 1901 and 1902 Baltimore Orioles had a tough time drawing crowds to their games, and at the end of the 1902 season they packed up their bags for what many now consider to be the capital of baseball - New York City the most obvious choice for a franchise in the fledgling American League.The New Yorkers played their games at Hilltop Park in New York, and thus were known as the Highlanders. The Highlanders, who would later become known as the Yankees, played their first game in New York on April 29, 1903. They would finish their first season in New York with a respectable 72-62 record, good for 4th place in the 8 team American League.Here's the history of the Yankees name, according to a great website devoted to Yankees history the American League moved the Baltimore Orioles to New York for the 1903 season, the club made its home at 168th Street and Broadway, one of the highest spots in Manhattan. The team would, therefore, be known as the "Highlanders" and their field "Hilltop Park." As early as 1905, however, the name "Yankees" began popping up in newspapers who'se editors undoubtedly were searching for a shorter name for their headlines. By the time the franchise moved from decaying Hilltop Park to the Polo Grounds in 1913, it officially changed its name to the by then commonly-used New York Yankees.In 1904, the season depicted here, the Highlanders finished a fantastic 92-59, 1 games behind Boston. Interestingly, the Red Sox also lost 59 games, but they won 95. I'm not sure why New York wasn't allowed to play 3 more games to see if they could tie things up if someone out there can fill us in, I'd appreciate it! Email us at and let us know why! We do know that the 1904 Yankees were managed by pitcher Clark Griffith, who would go on to become the manager, and owner, of the Washington Senators.The hitting leader on the 04 Yankees was Wee Willie Keeler, a 5 4 140 lb future hall of famer who hit .343. On the mound, Jack Chesbro went are you ready for this 41-12 with a 1.82 ERA. He started 51 games and went the distance in 48 of them pitching a whopping 454 2/3rds innings in the process!This 1904 dark blue uniform with white belt is a road uniform. You can see that the collar has been slightly modified from 1901 in that the lapels are now slightly rounded at the ends. This is still a pullover style jersey with a center belt loop on the pants.
