Phanatic Auction

by: map_admin

Remember all those colorfully painted Philly Phanatics that GPTMC scattered all over the city in time for opening day? Mural Arts staff artist, David McShane is responsible for the 80/08 championship adorned statue that greeted people up in Northern Liberties. Over the years Dave has become our go-to sports theme artist (Jackie Robinson, Eagles, future Phillies mural).

But where are the Phanatics now? Last night I was sitting around watching the Phillies beat the Braves when Tom McCarthy mentioned that they’re all being auctioned off (just in time for the holidays) over at the mlb website. If I’d been a little more on the ball, I would have mentioned this sooner. Dave’s sold last Thursday for $14,900, making it a top earner. There are still a few left, most for a lot less than 15k. What better gift for the person who has everything… and room for a 6 foot tall, fiberglass Phillie Phanatic?
