The following is a release from Jim and Marianne Mazziotta of Goal Line Art Inc.:
Over the years, many of you, our loyal customers, have been curious about the original art used in producing the Goal Line Art series. You have asked to be notified, if in fact, we ever offered for sale some of these original pieces.
Artist Gary Thomas has painted over 240 beautiful art pieces for this collection … and after 20 years of producing sets we have agreed to begin selling many of these originals. To be fair to all, we felt the best way to offer these pieces would be through a national auction house.
Over the past few years we have interviewed several in this business and chose Heritage Auctions as the company we feel would do the best for all involved. So, for the first time, Heritage will offer several pieces of Goal Line Original Art, in an online Signature Auction ending, Thursday, April 23, 2009.
If you are interested in owning an original piece of Goal Line Art, you must sign up in advance of the auction at www.HA.com, or call Client Services at (800) 872-6467 ext 1150.
We are very excited to be working with Heritage and to be able to offer this art to you. So many of you who have supported our venture since 1989 have commented over the years how much you enjoy Gary’s artistic rendition of these Hall of Famers … we believe that these original art works, done in acrylics, are quite special.
