Hello and thank you for your question!

Please let me know if there is any other info regarding this piece on or accompanying it; like who the publisher/ manufacturer is, year it was produced, or anything else that might be present/ mentioned. Also, please let me know what its dimensions are. If possible, state the dimensions of just the image itself (not including any borders or the frame) and those of the whole piece, including any borders and frame.

Thank you.

Thank you for the added info.

In that you describe the piece as being "3-D", it would appear to be a more recent piece depicting the historical moment, back in 1994. This will combine with other factors in determining the relative valuation of the work.

Some of the other relevant factors are: that it is in excellent condition, that it is of good size/ scale, it is signed and numbered, and that it is part of a fairly small number edition - 127. Additionally, it seems that the publication is well documented and may be attributed with a degree of confidence. That said, form here via this medium, I cannot authenticate these attributes, but instead comment there upon assuming them to be reliable.

Considering all of these characteristics, and also believing the work's overall presentation to be dynamic and engaging visually, the estimated fair market value for such a piece would be in the range of $500-$700.

One final note, if you have strong reason to believe or know with certainty that the work is actually more contemporary to the event it depicts - let's say from the mid or even late 1990's - its relative value would be considerably higher; more in the range of $1,000-$1,200, conservatively.

Again, a fine commemorative work depicting an incredible athlete and outstanding moment in sports history. Thank you for writing in about it.
