A couple of career details and name are included in type reminiscent of that used in print design during his playing days.

This is my sketch for the ribbon and name lettering.

I chose a sepia color palette for this painting to help capture the look of the era, when news about teams was poured over by fans in newspapers and magazines.

Shoeless Joe hit for a .356 average in his career, including .408 in 1911. He led the Chicago White Sox to the 1917 World Series title. And, of course, he's maybe best known for the 1919 Black Sox Scandal.
