American League players drawn by Vic Johnson – Harvey Kuenn
From the Mickey Vernon Museum, American League Baseball players drawn by Vic Johnson. This caricature of Harvey Kuenn is just one of a series of 19 caricatures of American League baseball players drawn by Vic Johnson during 1957.
This caricature of Harvey Kuenn and the the other 18, is taken from a composite collection of those illustrations and the personal signatures of virtually all of the players, managers, and coaches active in the American League during that year, done on a baseball-quality horsehide measuring 45 by 24 inches and collected by Mickey Vernon during the ’57 playing season.
This one-of-a-kind horsehide can be seen at the Mickey Vernon Sports History Museum in Chadds Ford, PA. Contact Jim Vankoski at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
