What a way to launch a career! Willie McGee will forever be known as one of the great five-tool superstars of the 1980s - a Gold Glove centerfielder who could run like the wind, slash the ball to the gaps, and take the ball over the fence with surprising power. Yet in October 1981, he was an unheralded minor leaguer who joined the St. Louis Cardinals in a barely-mentioned trade with the Yankees for a mediocre reliever named Bob Sykes. Just a year later, seemingly out of nowhere he was in the ultimate spotlight. After a great 1982 season in which he finished third in Rookie of the Year voting, Willie was thrust into the spotlight as the starting center fielder in game three of the Fall Classic in the hostile territory of Milwaukee's County Stadium. With the eyes of the nation upon him, Willie delivered - two home runs, and two spectacular catches, as the Cardinals took home field advantage back from the Brewers (an advantage they sorely needed to complete their seven-game series victory). Go, Willie, Go - one of the all-time fan-favorites in Cards history!

Available exclusively from SportsPosterWarehouse.com, this amazing poster features that unforgettable game with style and flair. From Willie's powder-blue road uniform of the era, to the World Series bunting giving the stadium a Fall Classic feel, to McGee's unique slash-and-dash style, this one has it all! The action is intense, the uniforms are retro, and the excitement is palpable. Printed on photographic-quality paper stock, decorated with the official National Baseball Hall of Fame and World Series 1982 logos, and complete with authentic MLB Properties holographic label, this is a true classic for your wall, and a rare collector's item for years to come. The perfect addition to your sports wall-of-fame!
