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 (Medium Blue), 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 2000 New York Mets uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this New York Mets uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other New York Mets 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 Mets finish the regular season with a 94-68 record and win the NL Wild Card playoff spot for the second straight year. This time around the Mets take on the San Francisco Giants in the best of five Divisional Series. Just as they did with the Diamondbacks in post season play in 99, the Mets beat the Giants 3 games to 1.The St. Louis Cardinals are next on the Mets dance card, and the Mets manhandle the Cards four games to one and head to the World Series for the 4th time (they won in 1969 and 1986, they lost in 1973). And their opponent? None other than their cross-town rival Yankees, making the 2001 World Series the first Subway Series since 1956 when the Yankees downed the Brooklyn Dodgers.Tensions ran high in the 2000 World Series as game one went twelve innings before the Yankees won 4-3 at Shea Stadium. Game two saw one the most bizarre events in recent World Series history as the Yanks Roger Clemens squared off against the Mets Mike Piazza, their first meeting since the regular season when Clemens accidentally (?) beaned Piazza in the head.With the crowd buzzing, the Pizza Guy stepped up to face the Rocket Roger. Piazza breaks his bat, sending wood splinters everywhere, while most of the bat sails towards the mound and stops somewhat short of Clemens. As Piazza jogs to first, Clemens picks up the broken bat and fires it in Piazzas direction. The Mets and Piazza take exception to this and finally receive justice when Clemens is suspended for the start of the next (2001) season. Unfortunately for the Mets, the high-powered Yanks would win Game Two 6-5, despite the Mets scoring their only runs in the ninth inning, coming up one run short of sending it to an extra frame. The Mets take game three at Shea 4-2, but lose the next two at Yankee Stadium, giving the Yankees their third straight championship (1998, 1999 and 2000) and 4th in 5 years (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000).Mike Piazza led the way at the plate in the regular season, hitting .324 with 38 home runs and 113 RBI. Second baseman Edgardo Alfonzo also hit .324 while belting 25 homers and driving in 94 RBI. On the mound the Mets were led by Al Leiter who went 16-8 with a 3.20 ERA, and Mike Hampton who went 15-10 with a 3.14 ERA, while Armando Benitez came in late and mopped up with 41 saves.Once again this is a black jersey, this time with the NEW YORK on the front. The patch on the right sleeve is the World Series patch worn by both teams in the World Series the wearing of a specially designed World Series patch began in the late 80's and continues to the present day and beyond.
