Wolfson is known for transforming ordinary white baseballs into remarkable original works of art with her Unforgettaballs!®, which represent a gift that celebrates the historic spirit at the heart of "America's pastime" while showcasing the cutting-edge technology of today. Both fun and inspiring, each design began as spectacularly detailed miniature paintings by Wolfson, which can be played, or displayed, making a treasured collectible and truly special gift for men, women and children of all ages.

"I'm always creating new parks on baseballs because I've found that baseball lovers want to collect them from each stadium they've visited," says Wolfson. "My designs start as small, original paintings which are intended for the spherical format. I combine history and architectural elements from each stadium, capturing every last detail."

Wolfson's painted baseballs of historical landmarks, such as the former Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium, are her best-sellers and have now become collector's items. The new "AT&T Stadium" ball is a perfect addition to this series. It makes an ideal gift for fans along with her designs of Shea Stadium, Wrigley Field and Citizens Bank Park and over 27 other ballparks around the country.

Dramatically different from anything in the marketplace, Unforgettaballs!® represent the finest collection of artwork printed on genuine baseballs in the world. More than three-quarters of a million have been sold since Wolfson hand-painted her first white leather, red-stitched baseball with an intricate flag design as a gift for her husband in 1994. This launched Unforgettaballs!® and a whole new career for Wolfson, a former architect. Since then, the North Jersey native and working mother of two has created more than 90 paintings for design on a baseball, commemorating everything from stadiums to cities, holidays to hobbies, life-cycle events and more, along the way developing a proprietary printing process in order to faithfully replicate the exceptional detailing coloration of each original work of art.

Available through catalogues and fine retail stores as well as online, the full collection of Unforgettaballs!® can be viewed and ordered through the Company's website: www.unforgettaballs.com.
