The San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants will sell a limited number of autographed lithographs featuring two legends – 49ers wide receiver and Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. 49ers Hall of Famer Dwight Clark the best all-around player in baseball history, Hall of Famer Willie Mays and – each holding signed images of their iconic catches.
With only 125 signed lithographs, the rare piece of Bay Area professional sports history can be purchased for $487. Proceeds from the lithographs will go to support Clark's charity of choice, the Golden Heart Fund, which was established in 2016 to support 49ers alumni in need of financial, medical, psychological or emotional support.
"Dwight valued his teammates like they were family and that's why the Golden Heart Fund and its mission to support 49ers alumni during their times of need was so important to him," said Keena Turner, Clark's 49ers teammate from 1980-87. "We'll never forget Dwight and the passion he showed for life and we're happy that his eternal commitment to his teammates will live on with the sale of this wonderful piece of art."
Both the 49ers and Giants will be selling the lithographs. Members of the Faithful can find the lithographs on sale at 49ers Training Camp at the SAP Performance Facility through August 12 and then, if any remain, via 49ers.com.
The Giants will have the signed lithographs available for purchase at the Giants Dugout Store at AT&T Park.
The image of the two iconic sports legends was taken at AT&T Park on April 29th, 2017, by legendary Bay Area photographer Michael Zagaris, with both holding signed images of their respective versions of "The Catch."
