A Former Cubs Outfielder Gave Tom Ricketts An Impressive Gift
Matt Szczur's time in Chicago was brief but it obviously meant a lot to the journeyman outfielder.
I never knew that Szczur had this hidden talent, but it's obviously there. The above picture shows the painting he did himself and then presented to Cubs owner, Tom Ricketts.
To add to the value of the painting, he had all the members of the 2016 World Series team sign it as well.
I'm sure we'll never know exactly how much this is worth considering the fact that I don't see Tom Ricketts selling this anytime soon but I'm sure it wouldn't be cheap.
There are no plans as of now to make replicas of the painting to sell to fans. I see that changing in the future. Someone will only need to attach a charitable cause to the proceeds and you'll see these in Wrigleyville in no time.
