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 1939 Green Bay Packers uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Green Bay Packers uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Green Bay Packers products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Tino Paolini for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd. 1939 was a NFL Championship winning season for the Green Bay Packers.

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 scott@heritagesportsart.com 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.

History

The Packers won their 5th NFL title this year (they previously won in 1929, 1930, 1931, and 1936), beating the New York Giants 27-0 at State Fair Park in Milwaukee, becoming the first team to shut out an opponent in an NFL Championship Game.As noted earlier, from the beginning of the NFL in 1920 until 1932, the league champion was the team with the best winning record (it was actually more complicated than this in some years, but well leave that story for another time). There were no playoff games, the regular season was the only season. This changed in 1933 when the NFL introduced a league championship game, and it was this league championship game that the Packers first won in 1936 (21-6 over the Boston Redskins) and again this year, 1939.This jersey is a classic long-sleeved jersey a simple white jersey with dark green numbers. By 1939 the top of the pants had been lowered from above the kidneys to hip/waist level - a look that continues to this day. Notice the belt buckle is slightly off center - a common style of this era.  The helmet is a yellow-gold color, a nice compliment to this uniform and a harbinger of things to come for the next 60+ years.It's interesting to note that from 1937-1994 the Packers actually played their home games in two cities. At least half the home games were played in Green Bay, while the other half were played in Milwaukee at what came to be known as Milwaukee County Stadium in Milwaukee. When the NFL expanded to 16 games in 1978, they played five of their eight home games at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, while the remaining three were played in Milwaukee.Since 1995, the Packers have played all their home games at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
