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 (Hunter Green), 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 1999 Philadelphia Eagles uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Philadelphia Eagles uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Philadelphia Eagles products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Tino Paolini for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd.

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.

A change in head coach, a change in quarterback, a change in defensive philosophy, a change in attitude. Indeed, change defined the theme that encompassed the Eagles.The Eagles brought in former Green Bay quarterback coach Andy Reid as their new head coach on January 11th 1999. Three months later, the club used the 2nd overall draft choice to select QB Donovan McNabb, one of the most accomplished athletes to ever come out of Syracuse. With their revamped roster, the Eagles got off to a sluggish 0-4 start, but rebounded with a come-from-behind win vs. the rival Dallas Cowboys, as well as their first victory on the road since 1996, as they downed the Chicago Bears, 20-16, at Soldier Field. However, a three-game losing streak followed which then prompted Reid to insert McNabb into the starting lineup for six of the final seven contests.In his first start on Nov. 14th vs. Washington, McNabb sparked the Birds to a 35-28 victory over the Redskins. Two weeks later in a rematch with the 'Skins, McNabb led the offense on two, 91-yd TD scoring drives in the 2nd half which erased a 17-3 deficit.RB Duce Staley saw his stock rise around the NFL as he garnered his second straight 1,000-yd rushing season (a career-high 1,273 yds.) en route to being named the first alternate for the NFC Pro Bowl squad. Staley's 1,567 total yards from scrimmage accounted for a NFL-best 41% of his team's offense.New defensive coordinator Jim Johnson turned up the heat as his troops accounted for a league-best 46 take-aways, including 28 interceptions (3rd in the NFL), five of which were returned for TD's, which was a team record. One of the many players who flourished under Johnson's system was FS Brian Dawkins, who earned his first Pro Bowl selection with 103 tackles, 4 INTs, and 6 forced fumbles. CB Troy Vincent also earned a berth on the Pro Bowl squad as his career-high 7 INTs tied for the league lead. As such, he became the first Eagle to top the entire NFL in INTs since Bill Bradley did so in 1972.A physical cornerback as well, Vincent posted career highs in tackles (100) and forced fumbles (4). 2nd-year MLB Jeremiah Trotter established himself as a force in his first year as a starter, posting a team-best 202 tackles (107 solo), along with 2.5 sacks and 2 INTs.Although the Eagles finished with a 5-11 record, Reid made it a priority to implement a very upbeat and positive attitude as the Eagles possessed one of the youngest teams in the NFL. At season's end, there were 16 rookie and first-year players on the roster, including 14 true rookies.If you look closely at this jersey,  you will note a smaller patch  the NFL shield on the jersey's neckline. Most NFL uniforms added the NFL logo patch to the neck and upper left thigh of the pants beginning in 1991 - an exception being in 1994 when teams occasionally wore "throwback" uniforms celebrating the NFL's 75th anniversary.Note the change of the colour green. When asked why the colour changed, owner Jeffrey Lurie stated that our fans want us to look less like the Jets.Check out the new logo: the name Eagles on the front, and a new picture of an eagle on the sleeves.The arms now have grey stripes at the edge. Note the changes of the helmet: the mask has changed, as well as the colour, and the eagles wings. If you look closely, you will also see an NFL patch on the back of the helmet.
