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 (Silver), 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 1976 Oakland Raiders white uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Oakland Raiders uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Oakland Raiders products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Tino Paolini for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd. 1976 was a Super Bowl winning season for the Oakland Raiders.

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

WhiteThe late 60's to early 70's brought change and success to the Raider organization. In 1969, managing general partner, Al Davis, brought in John Madden to coach and continue Davis handy work. In 1970, due in part to the continued efforts of Al Davis, the AFL & NFL merge. Under coach Madden, the Raiders continued to claw & scratch their way to victory, making the playoffs every year of Maddens 1969-78 reign except one.In 1976, Davis and Maddens Raiders go a remarkable 15-1, beating all comers except New England (who beat the Raiders 48-17 on what had to have been an off day for the otherwise perfect Raiders). In the first round of the playoffs, the Raiders met the Patriots again, and had to score two unanswered touchdowns in the 4th quarter to eke out a 24-21 win.A week later, they take on the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers, the defending Super Bowl champs. But Oakland's defence shuts down the vaunted Steelers attack, and the Raiders knock off the Steelers 24-7 to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time in their history.Their opponents are the Minnesota Vikings, who dominated the regular season in the NFC going 11-2-1. The Vikings capture the NFC Championship by beating the Redskins 35-20 and the LA Rams 24-13, and thus advance to the Super Bowl for the 4th time in 8 seasons.And as all good Raiders fans know, the Raiders pound the Vikings 32-14, in front of over 100,000 people to win Super Bowl XI at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Sure handed Fred Biletnikoff is named the MVP of the game.This road uniform, as worn by Super Bowl Champions Ken Stabler, Fred Biletnikoff, Ray Guy, Mark van Eeghen, Gene Upshaw, Art Shell, John Matusak, Otis Sistrunk and Jack Tatum commemorate this spectacular season.This white road uniform hasn't changed that drastically from the 63 version except that the chest & sleeve numbers have gone from gold to black, and the numbers now have a silver trim. If you look closely, you can see small numbers on the back of the helmets, straddling the black stripe that runs from front to back.A final note: The Raiders under John Madden compiled a truly remarkable record from 1969 to 1978 the Raiders went 103-32-7, making the playoffs every year but one (and in that 1971 season they went 8-4-2 but didn't make the playoffs).
