Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and the great veteran leader of your San Diego Padres' 1984 N.L. Championship run! This vintage classic takes you back to back to the early 1980s, when the baseball world raised an eyebrow at future Hall of Famer Steve Garvey when he signed on with the moribund SoCal franchise. And yet, in just one year, he brought the squad to the World Series with inspirational drive, hard-earned savvy, and clutch hitting to be remembered forever. Featuring an incredible shot of Garvey stroking another extra-base hit to the gap in the classic brown-and-gold uniform of the era, this is a brilliant celebration of that beloved era in team history. 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. Don't miss your chance at this legendary piece, baseball fans - only two available.
