Operation Shoebox New Jersey
Renowned sports illustrator James Fiorentino, whose portraits of America’s professional athletes are as legendary as the ballplayers’ exploits, will be guest of honor at the Second annual Wine Tasting fund raiser hosted by Operation Shoebox New Jersey at The Wine Room in Bound Brook, N.J. on Feb. 28.
Fiorentino has donated three limited-edition lithographs that will be auctioned during the evening – “Life of a Legend,” a poster-size collage of Mickey Mantle; “A Night in the Bronx,” a 16-by-20 inch panoramic view of the old Yankee Stadium and “The Captain,” a 16-by-20 inch image of New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter swinging at a pitch in the batter’s box with New York Mets’ catcher Mike Piazza behind the plate.
