Bob Probert, RIP (1965-2010) – Vintage Red Wings Poster

July 7, 2010

The sudden death of former Detroit Red Wing enforcer Bob Probert has shocked the sports world. His death came on the afternoon of Monday July 5th. Bob and his family were on his boat in Lake St.Clair, near Windsor, Ontario when Probert collapsed around 2pm and was pronounced dead later that day in hospital.

Bob Probert 1992 Starline Poster - $19.95

Probert was drafted 43rd by the Red Wings in 1983, the same year they chose Steve Yzerman 4th overall. He played for the Red Wings from 1985-1994, when he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks, where he retired in 2002. Over his career he racked up 384 points (163 goals and 221 assists). But what he was really known for were his bone crushing fights. Racking up 3300 penalty minutes and an amazing 303 fights over a 17 year career.

Bob was feared by anyone who ever laced up against him and praised by his team mates, who were greats such as Steve Yzerman, Chris Osgood and Sergei Fedorov. He went toe to toe countless times with greats such as Wendel Clark, Marty McSorley and Tie Domi to defend any of his team mates. Bob was always known for his stamina when squaring off with an opponent, and as the great Wendel Clark once said, “He started slow, but always finished strong”, which made him a very dangerous fighter.

As much as he was known for his iron fists on the ice, he was one of the nicest, most loved people off the ice. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

The Only Steve Emtman Poster Ever Produced? #1 Overall NFL Draft Pick, 1992

April 16, 2009

I’ll be honest – before I punched his name into a Google search, I did not remember who Steve Emtman was. And yet, here’s a guy who, 17 years ago this month, was the talk of the NFL Draft, going #1 overall to the Indianapolis Colts as a dominating Defensive Lineman out of the University of Washington. Injuries prevented his NFL career from ever truly taking off, so after this amazing release produced by the legendary Costacos Brothers company from a pre-rookie-season photo shoot, you’ll find no record of Emtman in the annals of sports poster history.

We found this poster hidden away in a box of mixed stock we obtained about a year ago, and have just posted it to eBay as a featured auction. I’m pretty certain we’ll never come across one of these again, so if you’re a big-time Huskies or Colts collector, you won’t want to miss your chance at owning this one. My guess is, there’s at least a few fans of this College Hall of Famer who will bid this up substantially. Auction ends April 23, 2009 at 8:43 pm EDT. If you come along after this date and time…sorry, I can’t help you find another one of these posters – you’ll just have to admire the picture!

Ichiro Suzuki earns his place on your Wall of Fame

March 24, 2009

What was I doing, transfixed to the television at 1:00 am EDT this morning, dead tired while nursing a cold, and having two little children to help take care of in less than six hours? I was watching one of the best baseball games I’ve ever seen! After two weeks of trying to follow a lacklustre group of teams playing an incomprehensible tournament format in front of mostly empty stadiums, the World Baseball Classic concluded with a truly amazing Japan-Korea final. The secret? These were actual TEAMS competing, not assembled groups of spring training refugees who’s GMs didn’t forbid them from taking part. After a 9 innings of amazing defense, intense strategy, clutch hitting, and dominant pitching, it was only fitting that the legendary Ichiro Suzuki would break the tie with a remarkable 8-pitch at-bat that resulted in a two-run single and a 5-3 Japanese victory. With his clutch performance, he definitely earned his spot on my Wall-of-Fame! Click on any of the images below for more info on these great Ichiro additions to your wall:
