The medium of this artwork is ink and crayon over graphite on pebble-grain Coquille board, with blue-pencil background shading.

Mullin, one of the greatest sporting cartoonists, casts an admiring eye on Bill Skowron, the first baseman who served the New York Yankees from 1954-67 as a homerun champion. Skowron's childhood nickname, Moose, stuck with him through a distinguished career. Mullin also delivers two portraits of Yankees chief Casey Stengel -- one photorealistic close-up, and one caricature.
