Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the most beloved Red Sox superstars of a generation! This vintage classic takes you back to the late-1970s, when the heir apparent to Yaz stepped up to become the next man to patrol the unique left-field ground in the shadow of the Green Monster for a generation. For 16 years at Fenway, all he did was hit - a .298 average, 382 home runs and 1,451 RBI in his Hall of Fame Red Sox-only career. Featuring an incredible shot of a young Jim at the dish on a sun-soaked Saturday afternoon, 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.

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.
