Football, or "pigskin," originally a pork byproduct, has become America's most popular pork-related pastime after recently topping baseball—a byproduct of sausage races. Commemorate sports' other meat with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an 8"x14" limited edition, artist-signed Alabama football print at jenniferharwellart (a $150 value, shipping and tax included). Choose between two options:
Both limited-edition, 8"x14" prints were created by Tim Bailey, official artist for Nick and Terry Saban’s Nick's Kids Fund, and are officially endorsed by Coach Saban. In "Class in Session 2008," Mr. Bailey captures Coach Saban getting his players to buy into his teachings of how to be a champion, bestowing them with knowledge about football, life, and Pat Boone's discography. "Hogtied in 8 Seconds" celebrates a late-game victory, Coach Saban's first SEC win at Alabama, with a tri-vignette work of art displaying the emotional brevity of the moment. On the left, the Alabama receiver leaps high into the air, while on the right, Mr. Saban points emphatically with his left index finger, like an épée-less fencer taking his final plunge into a formidable opponent or a stale piece of cake. In the center of the image, Coach Saban proudly signals touchdown, grinning from ear to ear as his torso seamlessly blends into the roar of the crowd.
Part of the proceeds benefit Nick's Kids Fund, a foundation started by Nick and Terry Saban, which supports the community, children, families, and teachers. Though the prints come unframed, you can purchase housing for your artwork ($40, additional shipping charges will apply). Purchasers will also receive a complimentary 8"x10" print entitled "The Debut," which comes signed by the artist.
