Michael Phelps “8 Gold” Poster (2008), Mark Spitz “7 Gold” Poster (1972)

August 21, 2008

Fans of the now-legendary Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will be thrilled to know that the instant-classic Sports Illustrated cover of August 25, 2008 is being published as a gallery-quality 18″x24″ poster for your wall (pre-ordering starts now; shipping starts 09/02/2008):

Michael Phelps 8 Gold! Poster (2008)

Admittedly, SI was trying to re-create the feel of this old poster – one of the best-selling sports posters of all-time, Mark Spitz “7 Gold!”, the 1972 classic that helped launch the company Studio One into prominence as the #1 poster publisher of the 1970s:

This poster was published in several versions throughout 1972 and 1973 (door-sized version seen here), with print runs likely in the hundreds of thousands – but unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to find one available for sale in any type of decent condition. We do know that one copy is held at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, as part of its Speedo Swimwear Collection (click on the link for further detailed information on the poster). Our guess on the value of one of these posters in decent condition? At least $300.

Michael Phelps Swimming Posters – “Ready…” and “Athens Haul” Now Available

Michael Phelps Ready Poster - Speedo 2008

Michael Phelps "Ready" Poster - Speedo 2008

It took an amazing eight gold medals in a single Olympic games – but finally, our customers are desperately seeking Michael Phelps posters! It will likely be a couple of months before anything specifically commemorating his Beijing 2008 performance will be released, but in the meantime, we’ve added two spectacular posters to our selection. First, there’s “Ready…” (see pic above), an intense, patriotic beauty released in June 2008. Published for distribution to Sports Authority stores by Speedo in anticipation of the Olympics, very few of these ended up in customers’ hands. We were lucky enough to obtain a small quantity from a Boston-area memorabilia dealer, and are making them available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Also available is this step back in time, “Athens Haul”, to his last eight-medal performance (6 gold, 2 bronze). A classic collector’s item, officially licensed by the USOC:
