Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and the dawn of the Showtime era in LA! This vintage classic takes you back to the rookie season of Hall of Fame superstar Earvin "Magic" Johnson, when he went straight from Michigan State to NBA superstardom, leading the Lakers to the NBA Championship in 1980. This poster comes from that first of his five championship wins in the decade. Amazing action shot featuring a typically magical moment for the revolutionary point guard. 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, old-school NBA fans - only one available.
