For those of you familiar with Sports Collectors Digest, T. S. O’Connell is retiring as editor after 17 years. In his “Editor’s Note-Saying Goodbye” column in the January 2011 issue and Saying good-bye is tough, Part Deux … blog post he put together a Sports Artist Hall of Fame artist and included little ole me. … and here I am without an acceptance speech.
Thanks T.S. for thinking well of my dabblings!
“Virtually even before I took over as editor, I made a concerted effort to promote as many of the great sports artists as I could in the pages each week. I’ll take the risk of leaving someone out because I really want to acknowledge as many of those great talents as I can.
Here goes: Charles De Simone, Bill Forsyth, Dan Gardiner, Stephen Holland, Robert Hurst, Michael Joseph, Andy Jurinko, Graig Kreindler, Ron Lewis, Paul Madden, Mike Mellett, Arthur K. Miller, Christopher Paluso, Dick Perez, Bill Purdom, Nathalie Rattner, Mike Schacht, Bruce Stark, Ron Stark and Darryl Vlasak. If that’s not a great inaugural class for the Sports Artist Hall of Fame, I don’t know what is.”
