1982 World Champion St. Louis Baseball Cardinals

From top left going clockwise are portraits of Ozzie Smith, Willie McGee, Red Schoendienst and Whity Herzog.

Two pages from booklet "Celebration!"

In 1983 I received an assignment from the St. Louis Baseball Cardinals to draw all the players and coaches  of the World Champion Baseball Cardinals. They did not have good quality photos of each player and coach and decided to have the portraits illustrated. The portraits were printed in a booklet called “Celebration!” which was inserted into the magazine “Baseball Digest”. This magazine with insert was given to the fans at a home game in 1983.
