With 2 wins, 1 save and just 1 earned run in 21 innings, Madison Bumgarner's World Series performance was one for the ages. Backstop Buster Posey signaled for 5 straight fastballs down the homestretch...and Mad Bum delivered. The fifth heater brought a foul popup snagged by Pablo Sandoval for the final out. Dynasty! Duffy's text begins with "3/31 AT ARI W 9-8" and ends with "SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS WIN 2014 WORLD SERIES 4-3."
A rising star on the sports art scene, Daniel Duffy literally paints with words. Through MLB.com, stadium shops, show appearances and his website, he has sold over 10,000 portrait prints featuring his unique brand of text art—yet fewer than a dozen of his original works have ever come to auction. Of those, this quartet ('56 Yankees, '80 Phillies, '86 Mets and '14 Giants) represents the first public offering of Duffy's popular "Road to the World Series" project, in which he meticulously depicts championship celebration scenes using the entire season's game log of dates, locations, results and scores. (Even the pinstripes are intricately composed of data!) Each piece appears on art-board and is signed and dated by Duffy.
