SOLD Bob Shawkee Pitching-For-Yanks-1921 Graphite Drawing

Regular price $40.00

I love the game of baseball, and everything about this drawing, most of the strange but very tender handling of the fingers on Bob Shawkey's pitching hand-- so good. His cap and glove and slightly open mouth are all pretty great too, and the style of the lettering at the bottom just right. Surely done by a Yankees obsessed adolescent boy in 1921, who it gives me pleasure to imagine drawing all his favorite players.

8" x 10", graphite on wove paper with just a bit of a sheen. Some old light creases and  and stains, a small tear to the right edge, and a lagged lower left corner (not a loss)--all of which in the case of this sort of drawing I think just make it better.
