If you’re a fan of baseball, you must check out “An Exhibition of Baseball’s Finest” by Dick Perez at the Agora Gallery in New York.  If you collected baseball cards in the 1980s, you’ll surely know Dick Perez’ work as he painted Donruss’ Diamond Kings series.

In this exhibit, Perez has paid tribute to some of the greatest ball players to ever grace the field including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson and the list goes on.  Each oil painting will immediately transport you into a legendary era gone by and you can nearly taste peanuts and Cracker Jacks as you walk through the gallery.
