A Duke Snider Painted Ball at Goldin Auctions

Check out this fantastic Duke Snider painted Baseball by modern-day pop artist Charles Fazzino. It is currently available on auction at Goldin Auctions (Auction Link).

It features a Snider autograph to go along with drawings highlighting his career. On one panel you see Duke stretching for a batted ball in the Ebbets Field outfield. Another panel celebrates his induction into the Hall of Fame in 1980.

The more unique aspect of Fazzino's painted ball is how he incorporates a 3-D element into the Baseball. As you can see, the Brooklyn Dodgers logo "pops" out of the ball.

Below are more pics showing the other panels. Currently, the ball has an opening price of $800 with no takers, so far.
