NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City auctioneer says a Norman Rockwell painting
of Boston Red Sox players could bring up to $30 million.

The painting appeared on the cover of the March 2, 1957, issue of the Saturday
Evening Post. The title is: "The Rookie (Red Sox Locker Room)." Christie’s is
offering it today with a pre-sale estimate of $20 million to $30 million.

The painting shows pitcher Frank Sullivan, right fielder Jackie Jensen, catcher
Sammy White, second baseman Billy Goodman and Hall of Famer Ted Williams.
