Description

A rather salty recipe for college football rival taunting is served up with this provocative piece of artwork. Presented is the original art by Bill Garner for the Naval Academy 10/8/83 “Navy vs. Air Force” football program. This vibrantly colored rendering shows a Navy Midshipman holding up the Air Force Falcon in a scenario suggesting “your goose is cooked” much to the amusement of mascot “Bill the Goat”. Measuring 11-3/4 x 15" this inspired piece is mounted to a cropping panel with dimensions of 16 x 17-1/2”. Also included is a (NM) copy of the related program.

This original piece of art is new to the market and has been in storage since its creation. The accompanying copy of the program is an uncirculated example. A small 1" section of the lower right corner is separated from the backing and there are two spots in the upper right region of the field that appear to have been touched-up, however in no way does the diminish or affect any portion of the character images.
