A classic football match-up is the subject of this original oil painting. This clash of titans features two of the top NFL teams of the 1960s, with the Baltimore Colts vs the Green Bay Packers. Perhaps the inspiration for this c.1960s original work was the 10/18/64 game played at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, with the Colts triumphing by a score of 24-21 on their way to a 12-2 season record and a spot in the ’64 NFL championship game. Support for this notion is provided by the depicted Colts players with golden-armed QB Johnny Unitas prepared to launch a missile downfield, while being protected from attacking Packers by running backs Tom Matte and Tony Lorick (with Colts 1964-1967). This vibrant oil on canvas panel painting is framed to overall dimensions of 34x28 and presents handsomely with dynamic images portrayed in a flowing sense of motion. There is an unobtrusive patch of small paint cracks in the field area at lower left which along with moderate wear on the weathered frame provides period authenticity. Offered at a rock-bottom starting point, this piece positions as a real “no-brainer” for both art lovers and football fans alike.
