Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and a glorious era in Chicago Bears football! This vintage classic takes you back to 1980, when the Bears were beginning their ascent to Super Bowl glory just a few years later, and features the man who thrilled a generation of fans at old Soldier Field with his speed and moves, Walter Payton! This poster comes from the prime of his legendary career, when he was a true icon of the Chicago sports scene, and features him churning up another big gain of yards in front of the home fans. 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 (this one has a few very minor tears in the left border, probably from the original unrolling of the poster back in '80). The picture you see here is the actual poster you will receive! Don't miss your chance at this one, Bears fans - only one available.
