Laguna Beach sports artist Dave Hobrecht has teamed up with former Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti to start a new company called The All-Time. Colletti is selecting a roster of the all-time greatest Dodger players, coaches, and broadcasters, while Hobrecht is creating completely original black-and-white paintings for each selection. The All-Time Dodgers pitching staff, catcher, and first baseman paintings have already been released, and the company recently revealed Hobrecht’s newest painting, “Respect,” showcasing the best second baseman in Dodgers history: Jackie Robinson.
Hobrecht wanted to create something that not only paid tribute to Jackie himself, but also to all of the lives that he affected.
“Players like Sandy Koufax, Roy Campanella, Chan Ho Park, and Fernando Valenzuela (among countless others) were able to become a part of Major League Baseball and have successful careers thanks to the brave actions of Jackie Robinson,” the company said in a release. “Branch Rickey and Vin Scully look on as Dodger players of all races, religions, and ethnicities line up to shake Jackie’s hand and pay respect.”
Based in Laguna Beach, The All-Time company will release an in-depth art book in September 2019 containing the all-time greatest Dodger legends at each position selected by Colletti and painted by Hobrecht. To learn more, visit www.thealltime.com.
