With Maddux, Glavine, Cox and Smoltz recently elected to the hallowed HOF pantheon, Atlanta's logo takes on special resonance these days. The franchise incorporated its tomahawk into the "A" cap design in 2003, and gazing upon it you can just hear the Tomahawk Chop echoing throughout Turner Field: Ooooh-oooh, oooh-oooh-oooh, ooooh-ooh-ooh.
What sets Timothy Raines apart from many prominent sports artists is that he didn’t make his name in the memorabilia industry, but rather crossed over from the elite art world of galleries and museums. Raines’ explosive mix of abstract expressionism and brand identity has earned him much praise and attention, ranging from exhibitions throughout Texas and Florida to a 2012 show at the Monaco Grand Prix. He even has his very own Timothy Raines Gallery in St. Petersburg, FL. Clients include Aston Martin, Michelin, Major League Baseball, the Tampa Bay Rays, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and duPont REGISTRY. Raines’ prints are also widely available on MLB team websites. However, this pairing of the Orioles and Braves represents the first time that Raines’ team-logo artwork has ever been publicly offered at auction. To see Timothy in action as he works his magic with paint bottles in hand, we recommend viewing the “Timothy Raines - White Tiger” YouTube video (linked on our website).
