The greatest constant in Dick Perez's unparalleled four-decade career has been his tenure as Official Artist of the Philadelphia Phillies. Even as he blazed a trail with Perez-Steele, Diamond Kings, The Immortals and the Conlon Collection, Perez never failed to deliver for his home team, never lost sight of his commitment to create classic works showcasing key players and important milestones. Last year, the Phillies asked Dick to commemorate J-Roll's franchise hit record for a poster that was gifted to "Early Bird Special" season-ticket buyers. Rollins laced a single to surpass Mike Schmidt with hit #2,235—and none other than Schmidty himself was the first to offer his congratulations. The heartwarming moment led to a brief halt as the Phils dugout emptied for more hugs, handshakes and high-fives. (To view footage, click here.) Perez's oil-on-canvas-panel rendering boasts all the hallmarks of his trademark impressionism, with vibrant hues, deft chiaroscuro and thick impasto brushstrokes. It's the ultimate celebration of the only two Phils franchise players who captured championship glory.
