After 35 yrs of imagining meeting Dick Butkus – Bob finally did.
On September 21, 2005, they met for the first time on location where Dick Butkus was making a TV show called Bound for Glory. Bob spent an hour discussing his art with the Bear’s great. After Bob won the 2008 EMMY AWARD, Butkus invited Bob many times to create art and display it at various events he was promoting.
Dick Butkus 1942 – 2023 was a man of high character who did not suffer fools easily, but was generous and had a great sense of humour. Mueller’s Butkus art is a celebration of Dick Butkus’s importance to the NFL. Simply the greatest Middle Linebacker to ever lace up cleats.
