Milwaukee Brewers 1987 Team Streak Glove Painting


30th Anniversary '87 Team Celebrated on Art at Brewers Fantasy Camp 2017

The latest Brewers Fantasy Camp featured art I created which focused on the legendary 1987 Milwaukee Brewers, who began their season with a 13-game winning streak.


"Team Streak", as they became known, is probably one of my most ambitious glove art paintings so far.

Incorporated in the design are five players key to the excitement of the 1987 Brewers:

Paul Molitor had a 39-game hit streak that season and is depicted coming out of the batters box after his hit in the last game of his streak.

Juan Nieves is depicted throwing the Brewers first no-hitter, a game caught by Bill Schroeder.


Teddy Higuera threw 32 consecutive scoreless innings in 1987.

Dale Sveum had the game winning home run on Easter Sunday, keeping the Brewers winning streak alive.

And Rob Deer led the way on the Sports Illustrated cover story about the hot Milwaukee team. The image of him on the cover of SI was the basis for my portrait of him.


Being a painting about a team, it seemed natural that the whole team should be represented. All player names from the '87 Brewers roster plus manager Tom Trebelhorn are included in the design.


The catcher's mitt is a pro model 1980s Rawlings, matching the era of the team depicted. While not the exact style used by Bill Schroeder the night he caught the Nieves no-hitter, the mitt did make for an ideal canvas for this painting


This glove art was part of the fundraising efforts of Brewers Fantasy Camp. The raffle for the "Team Streak" art raised money for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Wisconsin.


The winner of the framed painted glove was Fantasy Camper Scott F., who says he already knows exactly where it's going to hang in his home.

While not raised as a native Brewers fan, it's hard not to root for such a great group of guys and the opportunity to share my work with them in the desert the past few winters.

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.

A Career Captured on a Mitt: A Gift for Coop

Glove Art Commissioned as a Surprise Present for Cecil Cooper

Last year a Painted Glove featuring Cecil Cooper was created for the Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Camp as a fundraising item, which turned out to be a hit.

That baseball glove art prompted camp friends and former Brewers teammates of Coop's to commission a new painting celebrating his impressive baseball career -- this time as a surprise gift for him.


This gift was given to Cecil Cooper at Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Camp earlier this month (Feb. 2016) in Arizona.

The glove features depictions of Coop's time on two American League Championship Teams: playing first base with the Boston Red Sox (1971-1976) and up to bat the Brewers (1977-1987).

Centered on the large mitt is the main portrait of him as a Brewer.


Since Coop is a lefty, I chose an appropriate 80's era Rawlings first base mitt, just like the one he told me he used during his career.


All the big stats and honors from Cecil Cooper's career are noted, including his Gold Gloves, All-Star games, Silver Sluggers and RBI Leader years.

Also, researching his 2192 career hits, I found that Coop ranked 112th on the All-Time Hits list at the time of his retirement.


Cecil expressed excitement about the gift from his friends and says it will be displayed proudly at home between his Gold Glove Award and Roberto Clemente Award.

As the artist, it doesn't get much better than knowing that a creation is meaningful to the recipient.

What a thrill to be a part of this gift and to have the opportunity to celebrate Coop's career as a player. Big thanks to David, Bill and Jerry for entrusting me with this commission for their friend.

1982 Milwaukee Brewers Infield on Fantasy Camp Fundraiser Art

'82 Brew Crew Baseball Glove Artwork a Hit

A baseball glove painting commemorating the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers starting infield was part of the fun and fundraising at the Brewers Fantasy Camp recently held in Phoenix.


The intricate painting features Hall of Famers Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, Jim Gantner and Cecil Cooper.

The glove used is a 1980's Rawlings Pro Model. Upon seeing the glove, Yount said, "That's my gamer." It wasn't actually one of his game-used gloves, but it confirmed that the glove was definitely the right one for this painting.

The deep pocket of the glove and wrap around design of the artwork required cutting my paint brush handles in half (link opens new window) in order to fit my hand in the glove while painting.

The design process involved selecting photo reference of the infielders from 1982, arranging them with an eye on where seams and fingers break up the surface, and sizing them to fit.


I definitely wanted to include the iconic Brewers logo, placed on the "infield diamond" of the glove, along with other logo types the team used on jerseys from the Championship season.

It was a thrill to be present for Fantasy Camp Q&A Night with participants from the '82 AL Championship team.

And it was a treat showing the artwork to 3 of the 4 guys portrayed on the glove: Gantner, Yount and Cooper.


Also answering questions that night from the 1982 team were Don Money, Mike Caldwell and Brewers/baseball legend, Bob Uecker, who I got to sit with in the front row.


Former Brewer and Fantasy Camp coach, Don Money, is shown here with the winner of the glove artwork, camper Paul C., whose name he drew in the raffle.

Best of all, the '82 Brew Crew Painted Glove was part of an exciting and generous camp fundraising effort (including Kangaroo Court fines, jersey auction and matching grants) that raised $7500 for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight

The donation from Brewers Fantasy Camp will send many WWII and Korean War veterans to Washington, DC to visit their memorials. Fantastic!


A big thanks to Brewers' broadcaster and captain of the camp, Bill Schroeder (above, talking to Brewers' Doug Melvin), along with pal Rick Ramirez and the rest of the Brewers staff and Fantasy Camp family that welcomed me back to their awesome event to be a part of the fun.
