Close Shave, 1953 (Terry Sawchuk, George Armstrong, Gordie Howe)
LIMITED EDITION FINE ART ARCHIVAL PRINT FROM THE SPORT COLLECTION
Number in Edition: 50
Timing is everything in this classic image, snapped by legendary photographer Harold Barkley the instant after Detroit Red Wing goaltender Terry Sawchuk repelled this Toronto Maple Leaf shot. That’s Leaf George Armstrong in front, and Red Wing Gordie Howe — who would lead Detroit to the Stanley Cup a few months later — swinging up ice.
Each piece is hand titled and numbered, carries The SPORT Collection emboss, and is accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity, which sets out the details of the edition as well as bearing a detailed description of the image.
Each reproduction is printed on 100% Hahnemuhle cotton rag paper using UltraChrome K3 pigmented inks and produced to the highest standard of archival quality available.
FRAMED PRINTS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PICK-UP (TORONTO & VANCOUVER) OR LOCAL DELIVERY IN TORONTO.

Every fine-art product from the SPORT Gallery is printed on premium 100% Hahnemuhle cotton rag paper or Premier Art Canvas, and printed with UltraChrome K3 pigmented inks for the highest available archival quality. All prints are hand-printed in Toronto and made to order.
Mounting, matting and framing are also to the highest archival standards. Every fine art frame is made in Toronto to order by a local framer. We use ArtCare mountboard and matboard. Tru Vue UV-coated conservation glass and Roma solid poplar frames, all of which meet or exceed museum standards for fade resistance and durability.
Unframed prints ship in a heavy-duty tube to ensure prints are not damaged during shipping. When you receive your print it will appear curled but will flatten out when framed. A tube is the safest way to ship a print. Unframed prints over $100 ship for free within Canada.
Please note that due to the weight and fragility we do not ship framed pieces. We do have a selection of framed prints in stock at our Toronto gallery that are available for pick-up and select postal codes are eligible for local delivery of framed prints. Enter your address at checkout to see if you are eligible.
