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 2004 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. 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.

After the 2003 season, a season that saw the Eagles lose their third straight NFC Championship game (and second straight on home turf), the Eagles searched for a something or someone that could push them over the top. The answer came in a convoluted off-season deal that brought outspoken WR Terrell Owens to the Eagles. Owens and QB Donovan McNabb quickly became the Eagles dynamic duo on offence. Even though he missed the last 2 regular season games due to injury, T.O. caught 77 passes for 1200 yards and scored 14 touchdowns.The Eagles stormed through the early part of the season, not suffering a loss until week 9 on the road against their cross-state rival Steelers. They would go on to win their next 6 contests, before losing their final two games. Philly would finish the season with a 13-3 record.Despite their great record, the Eagles dreams of postseason success were put in doubt after Terrell Owens suffered a broken leg injury during a Week 15 game versus the Dallas Cowboys. Team doctors predicted that Owens would need eight weeks to heal and would most likely miss the entire playoffs including the Super Bowl. This setback seemingly did not affect the team as the Eagles rallied together and managed to advance to the Super Bowl, without Owens, by virtue of convincing wins over Minnesota, 27-14, in the NFC Divisional playoff and Atlanta, 27-10, in the NFC Championship game.This would be the Eagles first trip to the Super Bowl since Dick Vermeil led his team to the promised land in 1980. In that contest they lost to the Oakland Raiders 27-10. Before the NFL and AFL merged in the mid-1960's to create the Super Bowl, the Eagles won NFL Championships in 1948, 1949 and 1960.In Super Bowl XXXIX they could not stop New England's Tom Brady and game MVP WR Deion Branch. The game was scoreless after the first quarter, but then things became wild at the end of the 1st half and throughout the 2nd half as fans were treated to one of the more exciting Super Bowl games in recent memory. But alas our Eagles lost a close one 27-24 on the strength of Pat PK Adam Vinatieri and his 22-yard field goal with 8:40 remaining in the game. Despite his injury, Terrell Owens played in the game and excelled. He played a major role with a team-leading nine receptions for 122 yards.This Eagles black jersey was first introduced in 2003 when the Eagles played the Giants in Week 11. It is virtually opposite in color scheme to their green home jerseys and was an immediate hit with fans.This jersey is what is referred to nowadays as a 3rd  jersey. A 3rd jersey is a concept that became commonplace in baseball and hockey in the 1990's, and in the 2000s in the NFL. Most 3rd jerseys are worn occasionally at home as well as on the road, giving a team a third option as to what uniform to wear. And of course, the addition of a third jersey adds to the options fans can buy, thereby increasing apparel revenues and ultimately benefiting the team. More recently, baseball and hockey teams have begun adding 4th  and even 5th  jerseys to their roster of uniform possibilities, but this trend has not started in the NFL, nor is it likely to if for no other reason than the fact that the NFL season consists of only 16 regular season games vs baseball's 162 and hockey's 82.
