Below is a large (64" x 222") three panel triptych oil painting by Andy Jurinko. Go here to check out the auction and more details pics. As you can see, it features an afternoon game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium, and represents an actual game played on May 30, 1987. Unfortunately, the Dodgers got shut out that day, 3-0, by Kevin Gross. BTW, Orel Hershier started the game and is shown on the mound in the painting. Also Luis Aguayo is at the plate and Juan Samuel is on the on-deck circle.
Per the auction description:
The painter, Andy Jurinko, a lifelong basebball fan, who died of pancreatic cancer on Feb. 14, 2011, was a noted sports artist. His paintings are in great demand by fine art collectors, have been showcased in galleries and museums across the country, including the Baseball Hall of fame in Cooperstown, Ohio, on the covers of more than 20 books, and have been featured in such publications as Sports Illustrated, The New York Magazine, Barron's and the New York Times.
I thought this next it was really cool. Here is the Brooklyn Cyclones jersey worn by Dodger great Duke Snider when he threw out a first pitch on July 24, 2002. It has been signed. Check out the auction here.
