Take a step back in time, to a glorious era in sports posters, and one of the greatest baseball superstars of a generation! This vintage classic takes you back to 1984, when an unheralded former 7th-round draft pick had emerged into a pure hitting machine. Coming off his first batting title in 1983, Wade Boggs picked it right back up in 1984 with 203 hits and a .325 average - and it only got better from there, as he proceeded in his career to a .328 average, 3,010 hits, a World Series championship, and a trip to Cooperstown to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Featuring a brilliant shot of Wade and his classic stroke, following through as he watches another line drive split the gap in that style all his own. 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 one, fans - only one available.
