“Share your Fan Walls and Win” 2013 Contest Winners!

April 7, 2013

Thank you all for participating in our 2013 “Share your Fan Walls and Win” contest! With so many great entries, it was a real challenge to pick the best-of-the-best; but rest assured, the winners were more than worthy.

Judged by our President, Neil Flagg, and our Customer Service Manager, Islay Julen, each entry was evaluated on the criteria of: poster content, poster presentation, and overall room design.

We are proud to announce that the first prize winner ($100 spending spree at SportsPosterWarehouse.com) is Herman Sahota of Central California! Whether you love the San Francisco 49ers or not, you will appreciate the room he calls his “Niners Man Cave”:

The $100 winner of our 2013 “Share your Fan Walls and Win” contest – Herman Sahota’s “Niners Man Cave”

First, the posters: four awesome action posters of all-time San Francisco 49ers greats, including two classics still available at SportsPosterWarehouse.com (Joe Montana “Signature Series” and Jerry Rice “Going Deep”). Next, the presentation: each one is handsomely displayed in identical professional-quality glass frames with attractive black moulding for a classy touch, and brought to life with recessed halogen lighting placed at measured intervals. Finally, the overall room design: Herman went all-out with official Niners red-and-gold colors, and other great Niners accents like clocks and pillows that top the room off to perfection. Congratulations, Herman – and hope the rest of you got some great ideas for next year!

Our second prize winner ($50 credit at SportsPosterWarehouse.com) goes to Mark Daley of Ontario, Canada, and his phenomenal bedroom we’ll call “The Canadian Cave”.

Mark’s amazing room is filled on all four walls with great posters and other memorabilia featuring his two sporting passions: Toronto Blue Jays baseball, and Canada’s national sports of hockey. We love the old-school Jays posters – particularly the Costacos Brothers classic “Jays of Thunder” featuring Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter, and the hockey selection is amazing as well, with many rare Team Canada and Maple Leafs posters prominently displayed. Mark’s presentation is also spectacular, with everything slotted in carefully on its own theme wall. (Personally, we’re looking forward to a new 2013 Toronto Blue Jays World Series Champions poster on that wall this November!)

Third prize, a $25 account credit, goes to Adam and Aaron Laudati of Connecticut, for what we call “The Garage of Dreams”:

What this room lacks in comfort and finish, it makes up for in having one of the most unique collections of rare old-school posters we’ve ever seen! Displayed in sharp black frames around the ceiling line of his home’s garage are an eclectic mix of players in original Sports Illustrated , Starline and Nike designs from the 1970s and ’80s. Some all-time classics are here, like Michael Jordan in rookie action, and the famous George Gervin “Iceman” theme poster. Then, we get into some fan-favorite New England-area stars¬† like Craig James, Kevin Dineen and Carl Yastrzemski. Then, there’s some rarities we almost never see around, like an early-career Mats Sundin Quebec Nordiques poster, a posthumous Roberto Clemente “White-Border” Studio One poster from about 1977, and a late-1970s David Thompson Denver Nuggets poster sponsored by Pony. This is the room that will thrill the serious poster collectors!

Finally, we’re awarding four Honorable Mention prizes to the following entrants, who will receive a free poster of our choice in the mail. First, there’s our youngest contestant, Ian Morris of New Jersey, who has made the most of his bedroom with great basketball posters and more:
