Legendary 3D pop artist Charles Fazzino is known for his unique, detailed, vibrant, and three-dimensional style of artwork into the very fabric of popular culture. Fazzino’s artworks are exhibited in hundreds of museums and galleries in more than twenty different countries. This lot features a stunning Baltimore Orioles batting helmet that has been brought to life with all of the dazzling bells and whistles one would expect from an original Fazzino piece of art. This work of art was designed by Fazzino in honor of baseball's "Iron Man", Cal Ripken Jr.

Ripken played 21 seasons for the Orioles compiling 3,184 hits, 431 home runs, and 1,695 RBI's. He was a 19-time All-Star and was twice named American League MVP, and earned two gold glove awards. To date he holds the MLB record for the most consecutive games played, 2,632, after he famously surpassed Lou Gehrig's record in 1995.

Fazzino didn't leave an inch of this helmet un-touched. The batting helmet is entirely embellished with 3D pop-outs and rhinestones that Fazzino used to tie into Ripken's career both as a player, and as an Oriole. Above the left ear flap, Fazzino used the space to accurately portray Oriole Park with various pop-outs. The helmet features a bedazzled 3D Orioles logo down the top center of the helmet's shell. The right portion of the helmet's shell features a painted portrait of Ripken with additional 3D pop outs of Ripken's accolades. Limited to only 8, Ripken signed and inscribed this work of art around the vintage Orioles logo "IRON MAN, 82 ROY, 83/91 MVP, 19x AS, 83 WS CHAMPS, 2131/2632, 3184 HITS, 431 HR, THE RIPKEN WAY." *Please note that due to quantity levels, we do at times list a stock image of the product. This is done to standardize and expedite the listing process and only applies for merchandise that is comparably identical, and the helmet you will receive may portray a different serial number than the one photographed*
