This painting came out in 1957, on the cover of the “Saturday Evening Post.” It’s a pretty good painting as far as Rockwells go, I suppose. I like it mostly because ever since I first saw it my personal caption for it has been “A new guy? Oh my God, I hope — oh, whew! Don’t worry everyone. He’s white.”

In any event, this pre-Pumpsie Green Red Sox clubhouse scene just sold for $20 million. Which, wow.
