Go Bucs!About the Design
Burton Morris puts his own spin on popular American icons. In “Go Bucs,” Morris uses baseball images and logos from various eras to create a Pittsburgh Pirates dino with a new attitude. This Torosaurus uses the traditional team colors—black, gold and red—in a new way. The entire piece seems to reflect the energy of a young team and the fresh start of a new season.

Signatures of members of the 2003 team—including Manager Lloyd McClendon, Jason Kendall and Kip Wells—add value to an already valuable dinosaur created by the country’s leading post-pop artist. Sold!
