March Madness: Our best Big Ten posters

March 17, 2013

March Madness is upon us, and 2013 could be the Year of the Big Ten, with four teams from the conference in the top 10 nationally — No. 3 Indiana, No. 6 Michigan, No. 8 Michigan State and No. 10 Ohio State. Even Wisconsin is a dangerous team at No. 22.

And as the Big Ten tournament is going in Chicago, we at Sports Poster Warehouse are offering up our own Big Ten — our 10 best posters from the conference’s best schools.

Which Big Ten programs will advance to the Final Four this year? Now is the time to upgrade your “mancave” with a great poster or pennant for your school. Here’s 10 of our best Big Ten options for basketball fans this month. …

10. We open up with a hard-to-find gem — here’s the logo poster from the 2005 Final Four in St. Louis, which included Michigan State and Illinois. Wisconsin nearly made it three Big Ten teams that year, losing in the Elite Eight. North Carolina edged Illinois for the national title.


9. The Big Ten has so many great basketball arenas — we begin our panorama portion of the top 10 with a great picture of a Michigan State home game at the Breslin Center. This was taken in 2009, during another Final Four run for Sparty.


8. Not to be outdone, here’s a panorama shot of Indiana’s Assembly Hall. This spectacular 40-inch-wide shot was taken just last year, during Indiana’s upset of then-No. 5 Michigan State.


7. One more panorama shot — here’s Ohio State’s Value City Arena, with a great wide angle of the Buckeyes faithful taken during the 2011 season.


6. For a storied basketball history, we go back to the Hoosiers for this “Through the Years” montage of great Indiana basketball memories — Damon Bailey, Calbert Cheaney and more.


5. We don’t want to leave out Minnesota, so here’s the “Classic Goldy” logo poster, showing the “friendly but furious” gopher. Remember, they knocked off No. 1 Indiana, so be careful taking them lightly.


4. Not every household can be united when it comes to something as important as the Big Ten, and this 28-by-40-inch “House Divided” banner shows support for both Michigan and Michigan State.

3. More mascot art — here’s a Warhol-style poster for Buckeye Brutus, explaining the history of the Ohio State mascot, which goes back to 1965.

2. For sheer coolness, we like this Wisconsin logo poster — look closely at the iconic “W” and you’ll see it’s made up of the lyrics to “On Wisconsin,” one of the great college fight songs.

1. We’ll close this out with simplicity — if you’re a Hoosiers fan, all you need is the big IU flying proudly in front of the house, like with this 40-inch two-sided fabric banner.

And as an added bonus, use promotional code “MADMARCH” and we’ll give you a big 10 percent off your purchase ($15 minimum purchase). Search the site for many more great college basketball posters, from the Big Ten and more …

Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Commemorative Posters

June 28, 2011

For generations of Boston Bruins fans, there was only one image that came to mind when the words “Bruins” and “Stanley Cup” came together: the iconic black-and-white shot of Bobby Orr scoring the winning goal way back in 1970. After winning another cup in 1972, it took another 39 years before “The Goal” was finally relegated to secondary memory, as on June 15, 2011, the Bruins shocked the Canucks in Vancouver to win Game 7 and become Stanley Cup Champions once again!

Commemorative posters of the 2011 victory are now in stock. First, the annual “Champions” collage poster, featuring six superstars in action surrounding hockey’s holy grail itself, the Stanley Cup (in this case, Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas):

San Francisco Giants 2010 World Series Champs Commemorative Posters

November 6, 2010

It was unbelievable, but true: more than 50 years after moving from New York to the Bay Area, the San Francisco Giants had never won a World Series Championship! Not with Willie Mays or Willie McCovey; Orlando Cepeda or Juan Marichal; Will Clark or Kevin Mitchell; Jeff Kent or Barry Bonds. But in 2010, after accumulating a great pitching staff, a rookie catcher, and a band of cast-offs at virtually every other position, San Fran finally did it. The first of the Giants Championship Commemorative posters are on their way to us from the publisher. From Costacos Sports, we present “Champions 2010″ and “Celebration 2010″:

San Francisco Giants "Champions 2010" Commemorative Poster

Miami Heat land the Big 3; More Championship Posters to come?

July 12, 2010

“Miami Thrice”, “The Big 3″, “West Palm Trio”, whatever you call them, the best combination of three players the NBA has ever seen are now in the starting line up for the Miami Heat. Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade and the King himself, LeBron James have their eyes firmly places on an NBA Championship in 2011.

Dwayne Wade reverse layup - 2006

These three bring some of the most impressive stats to ever be complied on one team. Chris Bosh, the all time leading scorer for the Toronto Raptors, well as holding the title for 14 other achievements in Toronto. Dwayne Wade, the 6 time All-Star who is also the Miami heats all time leading scorer brings the one and only championship of the 3. Then there is the man himself, King James. One of the most prolific players in the game today, he is a 6 time All-Star, 2 time MVP, Rookie of the year, NBA scoring champion, and like the other two, a 2008 Olympic gold medallist. The one thing that has eluded both LeBron and Bosh is an NBA championship, which is has now brought them all together.

Miami Heat - 2006 NBA Champions

In their 22 year history the Heat have only won one championship, in 2006, with Wade and Shaq leading the way. They were the best team in the NBA, and hava the rings to prove it. After the championship the team started to slide. Shaq was traded to the Phoenix Suns, and the Heat went from 1st in their conference to 5th, things were bad. After a couple years of being a mediocrity, the Heat are back. They have the best line up in all of pro sports and everyone knows it. Other teams will now scramble to do what they can, but no one will be able to handle the unstoppable force of the Heat this coming year.  You can’t hand the championship to them yet, but honestly, it can’t be that far away.

June 19, 2009

Admit it, Penguins fans: even YOU didn’t think your boys could possibly win a Game 7 in Detroit. And yet, miracles do happen! A week after Marc-Andre Fleury made his amazing last-minute saves to preserve a 2-1 victory and earn Pittsburgh its second major sporting championship of 2009, the posters are out, and the selection is truly magnificent.

First, there’s the annual commemorative action poster – Pittsburgh Penguins “Champions 2009″ – featuring superstars Maxime Talbot, Kris Letang, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Gonchar, Fleury, and Jordan Staal.
