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 1993 Philadelphia Phillies uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Philadelphia Phillies uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Philadelphia Phillies products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Nola McConnan 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.

The Phillies dropped the blue road uniform in 1989 in favor of the more traditional gray, as we see in this 1993 jersey. The Phillies also brought back the written team name on the front of the jersey in 92 for the first time since 1970, with a subtle addition of blue stars over the is instead of red. They have also moved the players numbers to the left sleeve, and banished the zipper, (thank goodness) for buttons down the front and red trim around the sleeves. The Phillies would be the last team to get rid of the zippered jersey, wearing it for the last time in 1988.In 1993 the Phillies finished atop the NL East Division with a record of 97-65 and cast of  blue-collar workers. Several players had beards, chewed tobacco and seemed to always have a dirty uniform, even if the game had just started. The 1993 team led the league in several hitting categories as well as pitching. They would face the highly favored Atlanta Braves for the pennant and beat them four games to two.Once again they were the underdog against the defending champion Toronto Blue Jays in the World Series, (note: remember in 1944 & 1945 the Phillies were actually called the Blue Jays). The Jays went up 2 games to 1 in a high scoring Series so far with scores like 8-5 in game one for the Jays, 6-4 for the Phillies in game two and 10-3 for Toronto in game three. Game 4 would be no different. Going into the 8th, Philly was up 14-9. Closer Mitch Williams came into the game looking to shut down any attempts at a Jay comeback. As the inning ended and Williams walked back to the dugout, the Jays had scored 6 runs and were now up 15-14 and 3 games to 1 in the Series. The next game saw the Phillies Curt Schilling pitch a complete game 5 hit shutout. Just what the Phillies needed. Onto game six in Toronto. The Jays went up 5-1 early on, until the Phillies score 5 of their own in the 7th to take the lead 6-5. Mitch Williams comes on once again to close things out in the bottom of the 9th. Rickey Henderson and Paul Molitor both get on base, as Joe Carter steps up to the plate for one of the most memorable moments in World Series history. He drives a Williams pitch to left for a dramatic three run homer, giving the Jays their second straight championship. Carters home run is only the second Series ending homer in history, (the first was in the 1960 World Series when Bill Mazeroski of the Pirates hit a solo home run to beat the Yankees in game seven 10-9).
