Bob Uecker is probably best known for his roles as radio announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers and as a comedic actor.
Uecker starred in the popular "Major League" movies as the announcer Harry Doyle.
He appeared regularly in the sitcom "Mr. Belvedere". Uecker was also a frequent guest on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show". Uecker is also known for his role in the popular Miller Lite commercials.
From 1962 to 1967, Uecker was a catcher for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves.
He was part of the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Championship team.
Bob Uecker was inducted into the broadcaster wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003.
In a nod to Mr. Uecker's sense of humor, this depiction of him is based on one of his Topps baseball card photos. In the baseball card photo he is shown in a left-handed batting pose -- even though he was a right-handed batter. Classic Ueck.
Given Bob Uecker's connection to Milwaukee -- being raised there, making his MLB debut with the Milwaukee Braves and long tenure as Brewers play-by-play announcer -- it seemed natural to portray him with a Milwaukee cap on in this detailed painted portrait.
The glove is a '60s era Rawlings HOH X professional model glove, approximately 11 inches wide by 10.5 inches tall.
Ideal office bookshelf or man-cave centerpiece, this museum-quality baseball keepsake is sure to turn heads and start conversations.
This baseball glove art of Bob Uecker painted by Sean Kane is available for $3750.

(On a fun personal note, I was fortunate to get to sit "in the front row" with Mr. Uecker at Brewers Fantasy Camp in 2016!)
