For the Love of the Game
"This is a drawing from a historic spread in Life magazine when The Mets won the World Series," recalls Mort Gerberg of his 1969 illustration. "Life never ran any drawings, any cartoons, so this is kind of a great breakthrough."
Known for his clever combining of wit and social commentary, Mort has been a working cartoonist for more than half a century (and a Mets fan for longer), most notably for The New Yorker. "Mets Fans" is one in a series of limited edition prints we're offering (just 10 of each), numbered and signed by him with the same pen he uses to draw. Framed in solid ash wood with a double-thick mat, it's a gift for the person who enjoys art with a wink. Printed and framed in Oregon.
$10 from your purchase goes to the New-York Historical Society, a premier cultural institution dedicated to preserving the richly layered history of New York and the US. If you’re in Manhattan, please visit their exhibit of Mort's work, on display until May 5th.
