It's the Summer of '53 in Washington, DC. Steamy hot, as usual. The Senators entertaining the Boston Red Sox. Mickey Vernon is at bat for Washington. He'll go on to lead the American League in batting (.337) and doubles (43), but the Senators will finish well off the pace in the American League -- also as usual. Although it was a small ballpark (its capacity never exceeded 30,000), the dimensions of the playing field made Griffith a pitcher's dream. In 1953 the distance from home plate to the left field foul pole was a mere 405 feet. It was 421 feet to straightaway center and 320 feet down the rightfield line. The entire right side of the outfield was protected by a 30-foot high wall, similar to Fenway's Green Monster.

Measuring 15 3/4" tall x 36" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Grand Old Griffith, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Andy Jurinko, from whose original painting the fine art print has been exactingly reproduced onto acid-free paper, which is noted for its long-term archival abilities.
