It's the mid-'50s in North Philadelphia. First known as Shibe Park and now as Connie Mack Stadium, the grand old ballpark stands tall in middle age. Opened on April 12, 1909, as the first concrete and steel facility of its kind, this neighborhood ballpark was home to the A's from the beginning and to the Phillies from July 4, 1938. The A's are gone by now, off to Kansas City following the '54 season, but the Phillies will remain until the ballpark, renamed in 1953, closes on October 1, 1970. Looking above the ballpark's main entrance a visitor can't help but see the domed tower. Long-time A's co- owner and manager Connie Mack occupied the space under the dome, opulent quarters known as the oval office. If only walls could talk. The ballpark provided a stage for eight World Series, two All-Star games and the first night game in American League history.

Measuring 21 5/8" tall x 29 5/8" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Twenty-First and Lehigh, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Thomas Kolendra, 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.
