Papi Pops The Yanks

In the 4th game of the 2004 American League Championship Series, David Ortiz - "The Big Papi" - stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 12th inning and with one swing began a comeback that would erase the "Curse of the Bambino" and lead the Red Sox to four consecutive historic victories over the New York Yankees.

Papi Pops The Yanks is a 26" X 21" limited edition lithograph by famed sports artist Bill Purdom. It captures the precise moment at 1:22 a.m. on October 18, 2004 that Ortiz drove a 2-1 pitch from Paul Quantrill into the right field bullpen at Fenway Park. "Ortiz is just a great hitter and he beat me," Quantrill said afterwards.

This moment turned around the famed Red Sox-Yankees rivalry and ultimately was responsible for Boston's first World Series title in 86 years.

    The Artist - Bill Purdom


    Bill Purdom's art has been used by every major advertising agency in New York and his work has appeared in many magazines, including Sports Illustrated. He also was the first artist allowed by Steven Spielberg to paint the character “E.T.” Since 1989 Bill has painted 78 great moments in baseball, including 10 first pitch paintings from Opening Day at various new ballparks. Lithographs of all 78 of Purdom's paintings are a part of the permanent collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Due to Bill’s uncanny ability to capture likenesses, his portraits are highly sought and in great demand.
