Boston Celtics Posters – From Russell to Rondo, a Spectacular Collection

January 27, 2013

In the universe of basketball posters, there’s four things that really matter. There are trendy hot stars-of-the-moment; there is Michael Jordan; and there are two transcendent teams. To respect the sensitivities of New England hoops fans, we won’t mention the dreaded other franchise; today, we’re focusing only on the green machine – the NBA’s all-time most successful club, the Boston Celtics!

Boston-area sports fans are arguably the most loyal and passionate in the world, and poster publishers have always offered a generous selection of Celtics, Red Sox, Bruins and Patriots posters in their offerings. With over 60 different Celtics posters, prints, pennants and banners in-stock and ready to go, there’s something for the kids room or the man-cave; locker room or boardroom. We’ll focus on a few of our favorite choices; the full collection can be found here in our Boston Celtics Collection.

For any serious fan looking for a great combination of history, action, and style, you must consider “All-Time Greats”, the commemorative print seen here that includes a dozen of history’s greatest, along with all 17 championship seasons: Cousy, Russell, Hondo, Tiny, Bird, McHale, Parish, DJ, Ainge, Pierce, Rondo and Garnett.

Another great choice for the boardroom is one of our all-time best-selling exclusive basketball classics – “1967 Playoff Classic”, this legendary black-and-white beauty from the baseline at old Boston Garden. Wilt Chamberlain versus Bill Russell – just unbelievable!

Another great historic piece is this amazing extra-large premium felt pennant – “17-Time Champions”. This one can go anywhere – kids room, basement, office, or even as a gag gift for a Lakers fan you know (oops, we said the word…)! The quality of this made-in-USA premium item from Wincraft is astounding.

Speaking of championships, this one must be seen in person to be believed. From Photofile’s “Photoramics” collection, this is a spectacular celebration of the 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics. Pierce, Allen, Garnett, Rondo, Cassell, House, Perkins, Davis, and the rest are all here, in stunning color and detail from original photographic sources.

If you just want to hang that magnificent lucky leprechaun logo, you have several choices. For the ultimate in simplicity and value, just grab one of these official NBA team logo posters from Costacos Sports. For a splash of retro style, check out this standard-sized premium felt pennant featuring the throwback style. For something really bold – REALLY BIG – you can order this massive three-foot-by-five-foot banner that can go on the wall, on a flagpole, or with you to the game to help you get on TV!

Finally, get up to speed with some new-school. Rajon Rondo is today’s most popular poster boy for the green-and-white, but we’ve also got you covered with KG and Paul Pierce. And as the months and years go by and new stars arrive…we’ll have you covered!

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

NHL Poster Sales Down 40 Percent During Lockout

Hockey fans show their work stoppage displeasure with a strike of their own

Toronto, Ontario, January 7, 2012 – SportsPosterWarehouse.com (SPW), a leading online destination for sports posters and pennants, revealed today that NHL poster and pennant sales were down 40 percent for Q4 2012. This downward trend reveals that hockey fans staged a strike of their own, choosing to no longer purchase NHL related products during the lockout that will effectively end this month.

“Generally, professional hockey hero and NHL team posters are scarcely available in most American sporting goods stores. Thus, for many years, SPW has been a popular destination for NHL lovers. During the lockout, not even Sidney Crosby himself is selling well,” explains Neil Flagg, President of SportsPosterWarehouse.com.

The high period for a sports poster sales is during its respective season play. However, despite the fact that the NHL season is expected to begin in January, SPW forecasts that fan interest in NHL product sales will pick up somewhat, but wont fully rebound, in part due to lingering fan dissatisfaction with the work stoppage.

Top 10 of 2012 – Coming Soon

Unexpected Top-10 Seller – Babe Ruth With Kids Poster (1924)

August 6, 2010

Now this is what The Babe was all about! Somewhat surprisingly, this has been one of our top-sellers of Summer 2010 – but knowing what we know about the great Babe Ruth, it’s suddenly quite understandable.

Babe Ruth (click here to view our entire Babe Ruth Collection) has always been a National icon and even now, 62 years after his death he is one of the most well know athletes to ever play any sport. The Bambino had a habit of hitting home runs like no one else who came before him, totaling 714 in a 21-year career.

The Babe talking to a group of kids in 1924

But The Babe was known for more than just his on field prowess. After having a very hard childhood of his own, Ruth was always the first to be there for the kids. During the First World War when times were very tough, Ruth went out and bought a whole bunch of shoes and started to give them out to children in the streets of New York City.  Ruth was also known far and wide for never turning down a single child when they asked him for an autograph, sometimes spending hours after a game signing balls and cards.

Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig - 1930

What’s even more amazing than signing autographs for hours after a game is that the Babe was known to on many occasions to go out and play some sandlot ball with the kids.  That is just something you don’t see today, imagine seeing A-Rod out playing a game of ball with the local kids…

The Bambino, circa 1918

Babe Ruth was a great player, great role model and even better person, the game has always been at a loss without him.
