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!
