Legends & Champions
2016 College Football Game of the Year Award®
Anticipated Release: August 2017
Shown above is Artist Daniel A. Moore's preliminary compositional pencil drawing for his original full-color oil painting! Legends & Champions is artist Daniel A. Moore's new tribute in oils commemorating the history-making 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game. The painting is an integral part of the 2016 College Football Game of the Year Award®, which is presented annually by the United States Sports Academy. The artist is now in the process of creating the original oil painting from which editions of Lithographs and Giclées prints and canvases will be published. These Fine Art offerings give Clemson fans the opportunity to share in the Game of the Year Award!
The artist begins each of his oil paintings by first transforming his ideas into stunning visual compositions by creating a preliminary pencil sketch (above). Even in this rough stage, we can see there will be subtle references of Clemson Legends from the 1981 National Championship. These ghosted images include Coach Danny Ford, Defensive game MVP Homer Jordan and Offensive game MVP Jeff Davis. Their spiritual presence was not only felt by the current team of Clemson champions as they toppled the top-ranked Crimson Tide, but also by the numerous Clemson fans pulling for their Tigers.
Special Offer: All pre-orders placed through May 31, 2017 will receive free shipping and a print of the artist's preliminary pencil sketch (shown above).

Since 1979 no one has captured the excitement of college football like legendary sports artist Daniel A. Moore. This exquisite masterwork commemorates Clemson's 2016 National Championship victory and is being offered as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints and Canvases. Each heirloom quality product is meticulously reproduced from a traditional oil painting, unlike some computer-generated images offered by other publishers.
•Regular Edition Lithograph – The Regular Edition is the most widely produced edition. These prints are produced by a 4-color process known as offset-lithography. This “mass-production” process utilizes small red, green, blue and black dots to approximate the colors of the original artwork. Additional single color touch plates may be added to the printing to enhance colors closer to those of the original painting. Our lithographs are printed on acid-free archival paper, using permanent inks.
Each Regular Edition Lithograph has an image area of approximately 19½” x 26” and is hand-signed and numbered in pencil by the artist in the lower margin of the print. Each Regular Edition Lithograph is accompanied by a Certificate of Limited Edition & a gold embossed seal.
•Artist's Proof Giclée - The Artist's Proof is a higher definition print produced by the giclée printing process. The term giclée (zhee – clay) is French meaning “spraying of ink”. Giclée prints are produced on a 12-color printer utilizing archival inks transferred on to an acid-free cotton rag paper. Giclée printers are able to produce a wider range of color and higher definition detail than possible with tradition lithographic printing.
Each Artist's Proof Giclée has an image area of approximately 19½” x 26” and is hand-signed and numbered in ink by the artist in the lower margin of the print. Each Collector's Edition Giclée is accompanied by a Certificate of Limited Edition & a gold embossed seal.
