Museum Store Hits a Home Run

Philly All-Stars is the latest specialty baseball "pitched" by the Museum Store of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Sporting the signatures of 19 illustrious Philadelphians-from Benjamin Franklin and John Wanamaker to Ethel Barrymore and Connie Mack-the ball was created for the Museum Store by Lisa Roberts, a noted local designer.

Other winning baseball designs introduced by the Museum Store in recent years include the Cézanne Curve Ball, boldly patterned with the master's signature, and the Artists All-Stars, featuring signatures of 26 of history's greatest--Rembrandt, Cassatt, Van Gogh, C&eactue;zanne, Goya, and more. Along with Philly All-Stars, these regulation-size baseballs are available in the Museum Store for $9.50 each. Collectors of baseball memorabilia will also appreciate the Store's selection of display stands.
