Among the items sold by Sotheby’s/SCP Auctions on Tuesday were some original cartoons done by legendary New York sports artist Bill Gallo, who had a soft spot for Casey Stengel.
One Hall of Famers’ estate is much richer after Tuesday’s big auction in New York. The astronomical prices realized for Casey Stengel’s World Series jewelry is a big reason for that. But if true wealth is measured by friendship and memories, New York sports cartoonist Bill Gallo is pretty rich too.
He was thrilled to find one of baseball’s all-time favorites had hung some of his original artwork until he died.
