Rare artwork highlights Altuve, McCullers charity event

One-of-a-kind artwork signed by Lance McCulelrs Jr. and Jose Altuve was on display at Tootsies Thursday with proceeds from the artwork going to charity.

HOUSTON - One-of-a-kind artwork was one of the featured attractions at charity event hosted by two one-of-kind Astros.

Charities designated by both second baseman Jose Altuve and pitcher Lance McCullers were the beneficiaries of Thursday night's "Team Up for Kids and K9s" event at Tootsies in Houston. 

Artwork of McCullers, Altuve and Craig Biggio by Tampa artist Jason Skeldon expected to bring in big bucks at auction. Each piece, constructed of wood and resin, was signed by the player and is a 1/1.

The Lance McCullers Jr. Foundation supports pet shelters in Houston while Jose Altuve's Foundation is a fiscal sponsorship created for the event by  Athletes and Causes supporting 

Sunshine Kids, which benefits children with cancer, according to the organizers of the event.

Skeldon says each piece takes about a week to produce.
