Depicted within this frame is the very essence of what makes Fenway Park iconic. The “Green Monster” has long been the defining statement of all that is special about the Boston Red Sox.
Proudly presented are some of the actual components that were once integral parts of the “Green Monster”, which allows the very heart and soul of Fenway Park to become the absolute focal point of your home or office.

We begin at the upper left with an actual scoreboard number from the hand operated scoreboard located at the base of the “Green Monster”. This number is constructed of very heavy gauge metal, retains the original paint, and is fully authenticated.
For those wondering what the interior of a hand operated scoreboard looks like, we proceed to the upper right, where we are shown that which most fans never see in a lifetime of ballgames and an endless sea of ticket stubs – the numbers storage room which once housed the number in this frame. It may even be in the photo!

In between these two elements an early color photo of a game between the Red Sox and their arch rival, the New York Yankees is shown. This game was played on July 4th, 1942, and shows clearly what the “Green Monster” looked like before there was a “Green Monster”. Directly beneath this photo sits an engraved plaque detailing the history of the legendary wall.
At the far left, center, and far right of the lower section are signed and JSA authenticated photos of Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, and Jim Rice - the three Hall of Fame left fielders who kept watch continuously in the shadow of the Great Wall from 1940 through 1987 – a feat not equaled by any other ball club, before or since.

Between Williams and Yastrzemski are two authentic pieces of the “Green Monster”. The top one is the tin plate, which was in use until 1975, and below is a section of the painted vinyl which covers the lower section of the wall. This particular piece was sold originally by the Jimmy Fund, which is a highly regarded children’s charity endorsed and supported in part by the Red Sox.
Between Yastrzemski and Jim Rice sits and actual section of the netting that hangs above the “Green Monster”. Its purpose is to reign in home runs, lest they exit the ballpark entirely and become projectiles aimed by gravity toward the street below.

Finally, all artifacts and photographs shown are explained by their own individual engraved plaques, much as one would expect to see in fine museums.

Measuring 56 x 37, this display will become the conversation driver you’ve always wanted.
