Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the most beloved MLB superstars of an era! This vintage classic takes you back to 1987, when Hall of Fame legend Ozzie Smith was universally known as "The Wizard" for his unparalleled defensive theatrics at shortstop for one of the dominant National League franchises, the St. Louis Cardinals. Featuring an incredible shot of Ozzie performing his magic on a sun-soaked afternoon at Busch Stadium, this is a true classic for your wall. 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. Along with many of the 1987 releases in this series, this poster also features a team-colored outline around the picture, and the official team logo at top-right.

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 legendary piece, baseball fans - only one available.
