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 1996 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. 1996 was a Super Bowl 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 Pack is Back!After a 30 year wait, Coach Mike Holmgren and Quarterback Brett Favre led the Packers to a storybook 13-3 season and Green Bay's 3rd Super Bowl victory (other victories were in 1966 and 1967) and 12th NFL Championship (1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, 1965-67, 1996), beating the New England Patriots 35-21 to win Super Bowl XXXI.Some people wonder how it is that the Packers have won 12 NFL Championships, yet only 3 Super Bowls. A little history lesson: The Super Bowl began in 1966 (although it wasn't called the Super Bowl at the time) when the  Champions of two rival leagues, the AFL and the NFL, met to decide the World Championship of professional football. Prior to that the NFL Champs won what was simply called the NFL Championship, although it was every bit as meaningful to NFL fans and players as today's Super Bowl.This 1996 jersey is a road white jersey, and while it's very similar to the 1967 jersey shown earlier, there are several difference. The uniform numbers are now on the shoulders, not on the sleeves. The V neck has a multiple stripe pattern. And the neck has an NFL logo.Almost all NFL teams added the NFL logo to the V of their neck beginning in 1991. If you could see behind the helmet in this 1996 painting, you would also see an NFL logo on the upper left thigh. These logos have been worn by almost all teams since 1991 right up to the present. The most notable exception to this rule was 1994 when teams wore their throwback uniforms celebrating the NFL's 75th anniversary - in that year the league wanted to stress authenticity, and therefore the NFL logos were not a part of the 1994 design.
