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 (Yellow), 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 1994 San Diego Chargers throwback uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this San Diego Chargers uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other San Diego Chargers 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 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

In 1994 the NFL celebrated its 75th anniversary (1920 - 1994). As part of the 75th anniversary celebrations, during selected games in the 1994 season, teams wore uniforms and helmets designed to resemble those from an earlier season in the team's history. While some teams wore the "throwback" uniforms for only a few games, others used them for most of the season - for instance the San Francisco 49ers wore them for almost the entire season, including the Superbowl.This light blue throwback jersey was used to represent the 1966 jersey, while using the pants from the 1963 season. If you look closely, you will see that they even changed the helmet to match. Notice, however, that the mask is different than those in the early days.The Chargers fall to the Atlanta Falcons, 21-17, in only the team's second appearance in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio.San Diego made its first appearance in an American Bowl game, only to lose to the New York Giants, 28-20, in Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany. The game concluded the longest road trip in team history, while playing just two games during the 10-day trip.In the season opener against Denver, Stanley Richard returns an interception 99 yards for a touchdown to give San Diego a 27-24 lead at halftime on the way to a remarkable, 37-34, come-from-behind win.Stan Humphries and Tony Martin combine on a 99-yard touchdown completion to tie an NFL record and help defeat the Seahawks in Husky Stadium, 27-10. The Chargers defeated the Raiders in Los Angeles, 26-24, on a 33-yard John Carney field goal with two seconds remaining, and improved their record to 4-0 -  the team's best start since 1980.San Diego remained the NFL's only undefeated team (6-0) by winning on the road in New Orleans, 36-22.The Chargers clinched the AFC Western Division title with a 21-6 win over the N.Y. Jets in Giants Stadium, leaving them with an 11-5 record.
