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:

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!

Penguins/Fleury Support The Steelers-Awesome Poster

February 27, 2009

We here at Sports Poster Warehouse have a special poster for all the fans of Pittsburgh teams; a crossover classic!

This spectacular print celebrates one of the most memorable moments of the Penguins’ 2008-09 season. Clearly on a high after a Sunday afternoon shutout on home ice at The Igloo, Marc-Andre Fleury got himself into the civic spirit just minutes before kickoff of the AFC Championship Game. As the Steelers were about to take the field against the Baltimore Ravens in the final step to Super Bowl XLIII and ultimate glory, Fleury stepped onto the ice for his first star with a Steelers football helmet replacing his goaltender’s mask, and a “Terrible Towel” waving in the air to whip the crowd into a Championship frenzy.

With a huge smile on his face in front of an adoring, enthusiastic crowd, this was pure sporting magic! Topped off by the attractive powder-blue old-school third jersey worn by the Penguins that day, and this is pure photographic and historic perfection. A SportsPosterWarehouse.com exclusive 16″x20″ print, complete with NHL and NHLPA official logos and a serialized NHL Products hologram for licensing authenticity, this is also a valuable collector’s item for years to come!

Sidney Crosby vs. Ryan Miller Poster – “Outdoor Magic” – NHL Winter Classic 2008

March 26, 2008

It is a shame that Sidney Crosby has had an injury plagued season.  He is still the Next One and I for one cannot wait until the playoffs when he is back and healthy.  It will be nice to see the Pittsburgh Penguins make a Stanley Cup run.

One of the more memorable events of this season was the outdoor game on New Year’s Day between the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins.  The atmosphere was electric and of course it had to end with Sid the Kid scoring a shootout goal to win the game for the Penguins.  The moment was simply “Outdoor Magic“.

Outdoor Magic  

This Sports Poster Warehouse exclusive poster features the signature image of the day – Sidney Crosby breaking in on toque-capped Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller on the final breakaway of the overtime shootout, just a second away from potting the winner and celebrating victory.

The Sidney Crosby “Winter Classic” poster, which is one of the Sports Poster Warehouse’s best sellers, shows Sidney capping off the day by acknowledging the fans before he left the ice.

Another Sports Poster Warehouse exclusive poster which you cannot find anywhere else is Sidney Crosby “Breakaway”:

This poster shows Sidney in his first game as captain of the Penguins breaking up the ice in Raleigh on October 7, 2007. 

Enjoy the rest of the hockey season and come back soon Sidney.
