Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters! This vintage classic takes you back to 1983, when Motown's venerable NFL franchise turned to unheralded QB Eric Hipple to lead the franchise back to the promised land. After handing the ball to Hipple for the 1982 Wild Card game, he became the starter in 1983 and had his best NFL season, leading the Lions to a 9-7 record for the NFC Central championship and a post-season date with the 49ers. As with all posters in the "White Border" Sports Illustrated design that spanned the years 1978-1987, this one features the best of Sports Illustrated photography, the iconic white-bordered layout, and a facsimile signature from the player himself as part of the design!

This particular poster was obtained as part of our "Toledo Collection", obtained from a collector in Ohio who preserved his large collection of old 1980s Sports Illustrated posters flat, never displayed on the wall, and virtually untouched since purchasing them out of store racks back in the day. This one displays as well as it would have back in the 1980s, with just some minor typical imperfections consistent with any poster purchased at that time. The picture you see here is the actual poster you will receive! Don't miss your chance at this one, Lions fans - only one available.
