Black Americana Baseball Figures, 3+ FtThis Item Is On Sale
This collection of three Black Americana baseball figures, circa 1930's-1940's, are attributed to the San Antonio folk artist, Control Valadez. The set of Black memorabilia, sometimes called Black Americana, includes a pitcher, catcher & batter, each having been set and raised onto a custom iron base. They are all quite chippy with losses, nice patina and showing of age, still retaining much of their original paint colors. Likely once outdoor ornaments, we would suggest, due to their delicate condition, that these pieces remain indoors. Though historically, much black memorabilia portrayed racist and offensive ideas, there was also art, such as this collection, which reflects a more positive connotation, commemorating athletic achievements within the black community. These nicely sized baseball sculptures, with the tallest standing at over 3.5 ft., will make a wonderful and thought provoking collection of Black Americana history for your home.Dimensions
