Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the greatest pitchers of a generation! This vintage classic takes you back to 1978, when the great Jim Palmer was entering the final stage of his Hall of Fame career. Already a 200-game winner, 3-time Cy Young winner, and two-time World Series champion by the end of 1978, the veteran Palmer would continue along as a stalwart of the rotation for many more years, including the 1979 American League Championship run, and the 1983 World Series Championship, a glorious capstone to his playing days. Featuring an incredible shot of Jim's classic high-leg-kick delivery, this is the ultimate celebration of his unforgettable style. 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 legendary piece, baseball fans - only one available.
