This item was on a top shelf in my basement and I found it behind a piece of the ceiling which had fallen and concealed it for years.
I pulled it out and dusted it off. There is a signature under the Mr. Redlegs painting on the inside that reads "Nancy Lucas '73"
I called the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum and asked them about it and they told me that during the days of the "Big Red Machine" many people created their own Folk Art pieces to represent their love for the team. They also stated that they had never seen a piece like this and that it would be valued at whatever someone would be willing to pay for it.
What do you think?
Thanks for your time,
