Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the all-time legends of the game! This vintage classic takes you back to the glorious "Big Red Machine" of the 1970s, when Johnny Bench's leadership, athleticism, power, and perseverance helped the Cincinnati Reds become a National League dynasty. How many countless moments like these were there throughout his Hall of Fame career - getting ready to sacrifice the body and give it his all to make a winning play - in this case, blocking the plate and preparing to tag out a sliding baserunner. A rare play-at-the-plate action shot - how awesome is that for a poster? 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 old days, 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.
