Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and a glorious era in Philadelphia Eagles football! This vintage classic takes you back to 1979, when the man who called himself "The Polish Rifle" helped lead the Eagles to a renaissance of success, and a trip to the Super Bowl. Also known as "Jaws", Jaworski led the Eagles to an 11-5 record and a Wild-Card victory over the Bears in '79; and followed it up the next year with a 12-4 record, an NFC East Championship, playoff victories over the Vikings and Cowboys, and a trip to Super Bowl XV against the mighty Oakland Raiders. 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 - in fact, Ron signed this one not only with his autograph, but with "The Polish Rifle" as well!

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, fans and collectors - only one available.
