Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the greatest sluggers of a generation! This vintage classic takes you back to 1978, when the great Eddie Murray was on his rapid ascendancy to greatness. From his Rookie of the Year season in 1977, he elevated to All-Star and MVP candidate as a 22 -year-old in 1978, the year this poster was published. It didn't stop there - an American League Pennant the following season, a World Series championship four years subsequent, and a first-ballot Hall of Fame induction more than two decades in the future. Featuring an incredible shot of Eddie's calm, easy style that seemed to launch missiles into the bleachers without even trying, this is the ultimate celebration of his unforgettable presence on the field. 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.
