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 2000 Philadelphia Eagles uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Philadelphia Eagles uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Philadelphia Eagles products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Tino Paolini 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.

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.

Simply email me, Scott Sillcox, at scott@heritagesportsart.com and I will tell you everything I can about your original piece of art.

History

Often heard as the team broke the huddle following a late-season practice was the phrase, "Don't lose your personality." Those words were drummed into the players heads by 2nd year head coach Andy Reid, whose Eagles put Philadelphia back on the football map in the year 2000.After finishing the previous season at 5-11, Reid, the NFL's coach of the year by the Maxwell Club, The Sporting News, and Football Digest, led the Eagles to the greatest turnaround in franchise history, finishing 2nd in the NFC East at 11-5 and earning a trip to the NFC Divisional Playoffs.The unique personality of the Eagles was evident early on as an onsides kick by K David Akers was executed to perfection to kickoff the season opener at Dallas, leading them to a 41-14 thrashing of the Cowboys. Although they dropped their next two games, the Eagles rallied to win 10 of their next 13 games and earned the top Wild Card spot in the NFC.A 4-0 record in November that included comeback, overtime wins vs. Dallas and at Pittsburgh and an emotional victory at Washington vaulted them into sole possession of first place in the NFC East for the first time that late in the season since 1988. In the playoffs, the Eagles overwhelmed Tampa Bay, 21-3, before losing to the eventual NFC Champion NY Giants in the Divisional Playoffs.The stars of this team were plentiful, but none shined brighter than 2nd-year QB Donovan McNabb. When RB Duce Staley went down for the season with a foot injury in the fifth game of the year, McNabb became not only the focal point of the offense, but a legitimate Most Valuable Player candidate, while being named the first alternate on the NFC Pro Bowl squad. McNabb accounted for 74.6% of the team's total net yards (3rd in the NFL), including 629 rushing yards (tops among NFL QBs). He broke the club's single season record for most attempts (569) and completions (307) and became the first Eagles QB since 1994 (Randall Cunningham) to throw for over 3,000 yards in a season. TE Chad Lewis reaped the benefits of McNabb's maturation, leading all NFC tight ends in receptions (69) and earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl as a starter.The defense, orchestrated by coordinator Jim Johnson, ranked in the top ten in many categories, including fewest points allowed (15.9) and sacks (50) - the club's best output in each category since 1992. This unit featured three Pro Bowlers in CB Troy Vincent (5 interceptions), DE Hugh Douglas (15 sacks, plus 2 in playoffs), and MLB Jeremiah Trotter (171 tackles, 100 solo). First round draft choice DT Corey Simon also made an immediate impact, recording a rookie team-record 9.5 sacks.A full-time kicker for the first time in his career, Akers etched his name into the club's record book for most points in a season (121) and most consecutive field goals made (13).If you look closely at this jersey,  you will note a smaller patch  the NFL shield on the jersey's neckline. Most NFL uniforms added the NFL logo patch to the neck and upper left thigh of the pants beginning in 1991 - an exception being in 1994 when teams occasionally wore "throwback" uniforms celebrating the NFL's 75th anniversary.Note the change of the mask on the helmet. This jersey is still green, although the colour has changed throughout the years. The most recent change of colour happened after the 1995 season. When asked about the colour change, owner Jeffrey Lurie stated that our fans want us to look less like the Jets.
