One of the highlights of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game will certainly be the final appearance by New York Yankee Captain Derek Jeter. Charles Fazzino has celebrated the great shortstop’s career in a few different artistic forms, all of which will be on display at the T-Mobile All-Star Game Fanfest in Minnesota during All-Star week.
“Derek Jeter is the consummate baseball player,” said Fazzino. “I’ve always admired him and he’s one of the few players who transcends the game. He’s an icon and I have enjoyed watching him play and painting his achievements. I, like everyone else, will miss him.”
Jeter Seat Backs, Baseballs, and Original Paintings
Fazzino has assembled a striking collection of hand-painted seat backs from the old Yankee Stadium (all numbered #2 of course) and baseballs all autographed by Derek Jeter. He’s also painted an original 3D canvas work to celebrate the Yankee legend’s incredible career.
