Saturday, January 12, 2013 featured two of the most dynamic and exciting NFL playoff games in recent memory. Here’s our tribute, in posters – all available to order today from SportsPosterWarehouse.com!

From the thrilling OT victory of the Baltimore Ravens over the Denver Broncos, there’s unfairly-maligned gunslinging QB Joe Flacco:

Who completed a clutch long pass late in the fourth quarter to his underrated Tight End, Dennis Pitta:

and used his mighty-little-bulldog, running back Ray Rice, to perfection:

Earning the great Ray Lewis at least one more week to go in his legendary career:

Then, there was San Francisco 49ers QB phenom Colin Kaepernick:

Who got the most out of his own legs, and his gamebreaking wide receiver Michael Crabtree:

And the Niners’ all-time leading rusher, Frank Gore…

But the difference in the game was mostly the defense, where Patrick Willis dominated like no one on the hapless Packers:

For Stefanie De Rossi, a Toronto fitness trainer, exercise instructional posters help remind her clients of the safe and proper way to perform an exercise, as well as encourage them to try it on their own in between training sessions. “A gym fitness poster can be your “personal trainer on the wall,” for clients who are planning their own workouts, or don’t have a trainer with them that day,” says De Rossi. “They are a powerful reminder to help you stay on track and motivated in your fitness routine.”

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.

The Top 10 New Sports Posters of 2012

Posted December 22, 2012 by Neil Flagg
Categories: Lists

It’s that time of the year – Top 10 time! Here is a review of our top 10 new posters of 2012.

11. All right, we couldn’t quite narrow it down to 10, so we’ll start with one that could have been left off the list, but holds a soft spot in our hearts:

Jeremy Lin “Broadway Hit” – Photofile 16×20

During that February-March period in the sports calendar we normally call the “ESPN Dead Zone”, a little-known third-string point guard emerged from the shadows to light Manhattan, and the NBA universe, on fire! Jeremy Lin spun that miraculous run with the Knicks into a $25 million contract with the Houston Rockets to become the face of that franchise. Lin Houston Rockets posters to come in 2013…

10. Another little cheat on the “Top 10” format here. We couldn’t make room for both of the world’s top soccer stars, so we combined them under one entry:

Cristiano Ronaldo “Superstar” Real Madrid Action Poster (2012/13)

Lionel Messi “Concentration” FC Barcelona Poster (2012/13)

These spectacular posters come from our exclusive North American distribution agreement with the official Real Madrid and Barcelona poster publisher. Flown in from Granada, Spain just in time for Christmas 2012!

9. Our final “cheat” – the two baseball stars for whom the word “phenom” hardly suffices:

Mike Trout “Stealing Third” – Photofile 16×20

Bryce Harper “Launch” – Costacos 2012

Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, who starred as rookies at ages 20 and 19, respectively, will be subject of many, many more posters in the years to come!

8. There are few institutions that represent good-old American values of intellectual, moral, and physical greatness better than Notre Dame – and in 2012, Notre Dame was back!

Notre Dame Football “A Celebration of 125 Years” Panoramic Print

On the way to a perfect season and their first chance at National Championship glory since 1988, Blakeway Worldwide Panoramas stopped in to South Bend, Indiana to take this spectacular rare night-game shot of the legendary stadium, during the mid-season victory over rival Michigan.

7. Now this one’s both historic, and cool!

“From Kentucky to the NBA” (5 Draft Picks) – Costacos 2012

The dominating 2012 Kentucky Wildcats, NCAA Men’s Basketball National Champions, sent no less than five of its stars to the NBA via the NBA Draft: Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb. This amazing poster flies each player to his rookie-year destination from Lexington, in time for opening night!

6. Celebrate, Giants fans – Eli and the boys did the impossible yet again, and knocked off Brady and “Hoodie” in the big game!

New York Giants “Celebration XLVI” Super Bowl Championship Commemorative Poster – Costacos 2012

This poster brings the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants alive with amazing style, including shots of Eli Manning with the MVP trophy, and Mario Manningham making his ridiculous game-saving sideline grab.

5. The Panda, making history!

Pablo Sandoval 2012 World Series MVP Commemorative Poster (3-HR Game 1)

Credit for this amazing piece goes to our friend, photographer Brad Mangin (@BradMangin on Twitter), who was live in the photographer’s pit in San Francisco to capture all three moments-of-contact for Pablo Sandoval in his historic 3-HR Game 1 of the 2012 World Series.

4. You know you’re something when an entire nation knows you by five simple letters at the age of 22: RGIII!

Robert Griffin III “Arrival” Washington Redskins Rookie-Year Poster (2012)

Like Trout and Harper above, we’re quite certain that this phenom will be the subject of many, many more posters in the future. Combining humility, personality, and absolutely sick skills, Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins has a chance to become a transcendent national superstar, a Michael Jordan of football. Here’s hoping the folks at Costacos step up with some even better designs, and make him a lock for #1 in 2013!

3. More than 100 years of history, celebrating the world’s #1 sporting spectacle!

Summer Olympic Games 1896-2008 Officia IOCl Poster Collection Poster

For several years now, we have been the exclusive North American retailer of the IOC’s official Olympic poster reprints, but in conjunction with their 2012 London Olympic Games collection, Pyramid Posters released this amazing piece this year. A must for any Olympics fan and serious poster collector!

2.From the MMA fight of the year!

UFC 154 Official Fight Bill Poster (St-Pierre vs Condit, Montreal 11/17/2012)

From an otherwise ho-hum year in MMA came this barnburner of a fight in Montreal – when hometown favorite Georges St-Pierre came back from a long layoff to take down Carlos Condit and prove himself once again to be pound-for-pound the greatest fighter in the game! This poster has it all, too – spectacular golden hues, all the event details, and the perfect belt-to-belt face-off shot that screams intensity. We are pleased to be the UFC’s exclusive retailer in the poster specialty market, giving us access to the official posters that are otherwise only seen on bar and restaurant walls!

1. A work of high-flying hoops beauty!

Miami Heat ACTION STARS NBA Action Poster – LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade – Costacos Sports

The core of the dominating NBA Champion Miami Heat, each flushing down a slam, showing off the three styles of Heat uniforms, with awesome superhero-inspired graphics – this one truly has it all, one for the ages. If 2012 was the start of a new NBA dynasty, then this one will remain on fans’ walls for a long, long time.

Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Commemorative Posters

Categories: Championship Posters, New Poster Releases

Tags: ,

For generations of Boston Bruins fans, there was only one image that came to mind when the words “Bruins” and “Stanley Cup” came together: the iconic black-and-white shot of Bobby Orr scoring the winning goal way back in 1970. After winning another cup in 1972, it took another 39 years before “The Goal” was finally relegated to secondary memory, as on June 15, 2011, the Bruins shocked the Canucks in Vancouver to win Game 7 and become Stanley Cup Champions once again!

Commemorative posters of the 2011 victory are now in stock. First, the annual “Champions” collage poster, featuring six superstars in action surrounding hockey’s holy grail itself, the Stanley Cup (in this case, Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas):
