Baseball, more than any other sport, has certain "magic numbers" - 755, 61, 3,000, 30/30 - numbers that to an outsider doesn't mean a thing, but to devotees of the game these digits mean you have attained a certain place in the history of the game. "500" is one of those numbers. It represents the elite of the elite - players who have hit more than 500 career home runs. Reaching that number means you are a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame and more importantly, membership in the exclusive "500 Club".

Babe Ruth was the founding member in 1929 and remained its only member until Hank Aaron joined him some 40 years later. In 1988 sports artist Ron Lewis was commissioned to paint an epic depiction of all living members of baseball's 500 Home Run Club. The plan was for a limited-edition lithograph to be made of the painting that all 11 members would sign at a gathering in Atlantic City. The event turned out to be wildly successful and today this Ron Lewis' lithograph is one of the most sought after and reproduced pieces of sports art ever produced.

Presented here is one of the famed Ron Lewis limited-edition 500 Home Run Club multi-signed lithographs. This litho is numbered 047/1000 and captures Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, Harmon Killebrew, Reggie Jackson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mike Schmidt, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, and Willie McCovey on the field together in Yankee Stadium. Each player is depicted in the prime of their career, wearing the uniforms they made famous, relaxing in the company of their fellow members of the 500 Club. All of the players have signed their names in bold blue marker either on or below their respective images. This piece comes with a LOA from Beckett Authentication.
