Old School All Stars

Lester "Baby Huey" Hughes

Mick Reasor

Gouache on Rives BFK, 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

From a time before endorsement deals, earrings and astroturf when real men with politically incorrect nicknames played their entire careers for the same team, comes Old School All Stars. Original, One-of-a-kind miniature paintings by Mick Reasor featuring fictional heroes of the gridiron. This card portrays Lester "Baby Huey" Hughes, offensive tackle for the Cleveland Cuyahogas. "Baby Huey" reports to training camp every year with a little more "luggage." But that bulk has helped him become the proverbial "immovable object" on the offensive line.
