Description

This assembly of (16) 1940s-1960s one-sheet sports-related movie posters is an ideal adornment for any office, den or game room. These advertisements were proudly displayed for years in a pub, thus the majority are in off-grade condition. Despite a combination of wear (including the majority being affixed to cardboard backings), these large posters provide an interesting glimpse into the American sporting landscape of the 1940s-1960s. Highlights include Baseball: Angels in the Outfield (1951), Fear Strikes Out (1957); Boxing: World In My Corner (1956); Football: circa 1953-1957 Elroy Hirsch film flier montage and Hockey: White Lightning (1953). For a complete list of films and dimensions, please visit our website.
