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 (Orange), 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 2002 San Francisco Giants uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this San Francisco Giants uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other San Francisco Giants 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.

Bonds, Barry Bonds. This was the answer most people in San Francisco would give if you asked why the Giants were so successful in 2002.In 2001 Bonds set the single season homerun record with 73, surpassing the 70 dingers that Mark McGwire hit in 1999.  In 2002 Bonds would have another monster year, repeating as NL MVP (this would be his 5th MVP Award, he previously won in 1990, 92, 93, 2001) while leading the league in batting average at .370 thanks in part to an incredible .582 on-base percentage. This mark would give Bonds the all time record in this category. He would surpass the record in 2004 with a .609 OBA. He also hit 46 homers, finishing the season with 613 career dingers, in the process becoming the 4th player in baseball history to hit 600 career home runs (Henry Aaron is 1 with 755; Babe Ruth 2 with 714, Willies Mays 3rd with 660).The Giants would battle the Arizona Diamondbacks for the NL West crown, but would ultimately fall 3 games short of the Division title. However their 95-66 record was good enough for the NL Wild Card berth and a 1st round shot at the Atlanta Braves.In the playoffs Bonds would lose his reputation that he could not win the playoffs as he hit 3 home runs in the NLDS as the Giants stunned the Atlanta Braves in 5 games (3-2). In the NLCS Bonds continued to be a threat driving in 10 runs. Ultimately, it was C Benito Santiago who was the NLCS hero.  He hit .300 and drove in 6 runs to win the NLCS MVP as the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals in 5 games (4-1).In an all-California World Series, the Giants met the upstart AL champion Anaheim Angels, they like the Giants were vying to be the second Wild Card team to win the World Series (the 1st was the Florida Marlins in 1997).In Game 1 in Anaheim the Giants emerged with a 4-3 victory on Bonds got the Giants off to a fast start with a 2nd Inning home run. Game 2 would be a wild affair as the Angels even the series with an 11-10 win. Bonds would go deep again hitting majestic shot in the 9th Inning. The series shifted to Pac Bell in San Francisco and the Giants lost 10-4, despite another Bonds homer. After falling behind early in Game 4 the Giants would rally to win 4-3 to even the series. Carrying the momentum on the Giants would take a 3-2 series lead with a dominating 16-4 win. Back in Anaheim for Game 6 the Giants appeared to steam rolling towards their first World Championship since moving to San Francisco, as Barry Bonds hit is 4th series HR, as the Giants held a 5-0 in the 7th Inning. However, the Angels would stage an incredible rally scoring 6 runs in the 7th and 8th innings to force a 7th game. Disheartened the Giants would fall in the series finale 4-1. Despite the disappointing loss Barry Bonds had an impressive series with an incredible .700 on-base percentage, 4 home runs and 13 walks, a World Series record.At home in 2002 the Giants would wear their classic white uniform with the teams nickname spelled out in the script used throughout the history of the franchise. The script has an accent of gold to go along with the customary orange and black.
