Famous Time magazine cover artist Ernest Hamlin Baker painted the portraits of many well-known sports figures in the '40s and '50s. I have in my collection 8 of the only known copies of Coach Frank Leahy's cover offered for sale. (I believe there are two or three more proofs, but the artists' heirs are keeping them.) [An ad in the March 13, 1998 issue of Sports Collectors Digest lists these Hamlin proofs for sale: Jackie Robinson-$395, Stan Musial-$295, Mel Ott-$250, Leo Durocher- $195, Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis-$195.] $199.00
