My last few designs have focused on specialty balls because I’ve found that people really enjoy a gift that commemorates an event. Each is a great gift for the particular fan who already has a collection or might even want to start one!

With the holiday season in full swing and gift deadlines quickly approaching, miniaturist artist Emily M. Wolfson announced today that she just added her Fenway Park 100-Year Anniversary and the Tiger Stadium 100-Year Anniversary designs of her Unforgettaballs!® to the collection of painted baseballs for purchase. Both are limited edition pieces, are available signed or unsigned, and include a protective, clear lucite display box. Each are available from $17.50 - $30.00 (plus shipping).
Wolfson is known for transforming ordinary white baseballs into remarkable original works of art with her Unforgettaballs!®, which represent a gift that celebrates the historic spirit at the heart of “America’s pastime” while showcasing the cutting-edge technology of today. Both fun and inspiring, each design began as spectacularly detailed miniature paintings by Wolfson, which can be played, displayed, personalized and customized, making a treasured collectible and truly special gift for men, women, children, co-workers, grandparents, and just about anyone on your gift list.
In 2012, Boston’s Fenway Park celebrated 100 years and Wolfson’s commemorative baseball has the front of Fenway Park on one panel, and the inside of the park on the other. It is not only full of detail but beautifully colored as well, making it a true historic piece.
Detroit’s printed baseball has a detailed painting of “Tiger Stadium” on it with one panel of the baseball displaying the inside field view of the original stadium, including billboards and stadium seats all painted in full detail. The other panel of the baseball has a view of the outside of the original stadium, where the name “Tiger Stadium” is located, exactly as it is shown on the real building.
Wolfson says, “My last few designs have focused on specialty balls because I’ve found that people really enjoy a gift that commemorates an event. Each is a great gift for the particular fan who already has a collection or might even want to start one!”
A Great Gift for Anyone on the Gift List
“As with all of my other designs, these started as small, original paintings which were intended for the spherical format,” adds Wolfson. “My painted baseballs of historical landmarks, such as the Yankee Stadium baseballs, are my best-sellers and have now become collector’s items. They make a perfect gift for fans along with the other designs of baseball fields, such as Shea Stadium, Wrigley Field and Citizens Bank Park.”
Dramatically different from anything in the marketplace, Unforgettaballs!® represent the finest collection of artwork printed on genuine baseballs in the world. More than three-quarters of a million have been sold since Wolfson hand-painted her first white leather, red-stitched baseball with an intricate flag design as a gift for her husband in 1994. This launched Unforgettaballs!® and a whole new career for Wolfson, a former architect. Since then, the North Jersey native and working mother of two has created more than 70 paintings for design on a baseball, commemorating everything from stadiums to cities, holidays to hobbies, life-cycle events and more, along the way developing a proprietary printing process in order to faithfully replicate the exceptional detailing coloration of each original work of art.
Available through catalogues and fine retail stores as well as online, the full collection of Unforgettaballs!® can be viewed and ordered through the Company’s website: http://www.unforgettaballs.com. Wolfson’s painted Unforgettaballs!® baseballs are artistic renderings and are not related to MLB. For more information please contact Conversation Pieces, Inc. at: (610) 668-3850.
