Pittsburgh Penguins 2009 Stanley Cup Champions Posters, Prints, Pennants

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.

Next, it’s the annual “Celebration” poster - this year, enhanced with multiple images of the on-ice pandemonium on the evening of June 12, 2009 at Joe Louis Arena, including the joyous moments at the net immediately following the final horn:

Costacos Sports, the venerable poster publisher that normally stops at the standard “Champions” and “Celebration” posters seen above, went a step further this year, and added a third Stanley Cup commemorative, sure to become an all-time classic for fans of Sidney Crosby as his storied career continues its path to ultimate greatness. It’s Sidney Crosby “Holy Grail”, featuring the captain and the cup, both shining in championship glory:

Sid was the lynchpin and the leader, but Geno was the MVP! Wincraft is producing this limited-edition premium felt pennant commemorating Evgeni Malkin’s Conn Smythe trophy winning performance:

And then there’s this 16″ x 20″ Photofile of Malkin raising the chalice:

Fans of Marc-Andre Fleury will be happy to know that we’ll be stocking a similar 16″ x 20″ Photofile print of the goalie superstar in his moment of glory with the Cup. And, although it’s not from the Finals, this shot could very well represent the turning point in Pittsburgh’s journey from Eastern Conference contender to Stanley Cup Champions – Marc-Andre Fleury “Stones Ovechkin”:

Another annual favorite is the Stanley Cup Champions panoramic print from Rob Arra’s Everlasting Images. Since the Cup was clinched in the visitors’ arena, this year’s poster features the final seconds of Game 6 at The Igloo, but also includes inset shots of the celebration after Game 7 in Detroit:

Finally, there are three more great entries in our ever-expanding, ever-more-popular Wincraft premium pennant series: “Stanley Cup Champions”, Sidney Crosby “Youngest Captain”, and Pittsburgh Penguins “Celebration” 17×40 Extra-Large Premium Pennant.

Now that’s a selection! It’s the best post-Stanley Cup selection we’ve ever had. Sales are brisk so far, and if things continue well, perhaps we’ll be encouraged to bring in more Photofile prints from their vast selection of images.

Pittsburgh sports fans, don’t forget: many great Steelers Super Bowl commemorative posters are still in stock!

2008-2009 NHL Season-Mid-Season Report

January 7, 2009
The 2008-2009 NHL season is at it’s midway point. There have been a ton of great hits, saves and goals. The action has been both intense and fierce. The power house teams, the Sharks, Red Wings, Capitals and Flames have all continued to dominate the league, as they all sit at the top of their respective divisions. The Bruins and Flyers have both been major surprises this season. While both teams are in first place in their division, the big surprise is the convincing fashion in which they’ve done it, having dismantled many high quality teams in the process.
As per usual, veterans Joe Thornton, Jarome Iginla and Marian Hossa lead both their teams and the league in many offensive categories. These players seem to be counted upon year after year. Young superstars Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin each continue to dominate the National Hockey League. With tremendous speed, talent and physical attributes, these players will control the game of hockey for years to come.
There is a new breed of young superstars that are currently making their ascent in the NHL. These players all have superb skill, desire and flash, and should all be factors in the NHL for quite some time. With that said, Sports Poster Warehouse is celebrating the great start to the season and to these young, up and coming stars with brand new NHL player posters.
