Detroit Red Wings 2008 Stanley Cup Champions Posters
Hockeytown fanatics, your posters have finally arrived! It’s taken a while, but the new 2008 Stanley Cup commemorative posters will finally be in stock on July 3, ready to ship quickly to your door.
We actually got a small initial shipment of the first poster – “Stanley Cup Champions 2008” – a couple of weeks ago, but we sold out of those quickly. We’ll have more again on July 3. This is a very nice design, featuring seven key ingredients to the dominating squad, including the Conn Smythe winner (Henrik Zetterberg), the clutch-scoring wizard (Johan Franzen), the Norris Trophy winner (Nicklas Lidstrom), and, despite not playing in the Finals at all, a special appearance from the ageless wonder, Chris Chelios. Here it is:
Next up, it’s a return of an old annual classic. From 1993 to 2002, the old, but now defunct, licensed sports poster publsher Starline Inc. published a “Celebration” poster, featuring nothing but the on-ice post-victory team portrait printed HUGE on a horizontal poster. Good news – IT’S BACK! – Detroit Red Wings “Celebration 2008”. This has been the best-seller in pre-orders so far:
And finally, here’s the premium commemorative, published by the fine folks at photographer Rob Arra’s Everlasting Images company. This is a spectacular panoramic print inside Joe Louis Arena during Game 1 of the finals, with celebratory images inset, and the final scores of each game at bottom-right. Printed on high-quality photographic stock, this is worthy of a nice oak frame and a prominent place on your home or office wall:
This appears to be it for 2008 Red Wings Championship posters, as we’ve heard nothing else from other publishers. So snap these up while you still can! And check out posters still in stock from 1997, 1998, and 2002 in our Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup collection.
