The raddest sports posters

    Not a slideshow, thankfully -- a place where the Costacos Brothers still live.


    Apparently, they were the subject of an art show, believe it or not.


    I bet Bubbler had this one on his bedroom wall:

    Wow, that's great. What a trip.

    Had the top one (Jordan). The other poster I recall having, but it isn't on there, is the Raiders secondary "No Passing Zone."

    And what do you think the odds are that James Worthy got with his "secretary" after that shoot?

    I had the Rice one on my wall as a kid. I was only able to access the Forbes link, so I only saw nine of them.

    My favorite sports posters as a kid were the Michael Jordan dunk contest one when his his arm is cocked back. I'd bet most of the people here between the ages of 30-40 owned it...

    Bo Jackson with the shoulder pads and the baseball bat was another one that was just great.

    Isn't it amazing how vivid those posters are in your mind decades later? I can't remember anything from 20 years ago, but I can remember every poster and their locations on my wall in my room.

    My favorite was from about 1991 in the only photo known in existence of Sandy Alomar, Jr. without a knee brace..

    When I turned 6, my aunt gave me three baseball posters for my room. I had asked for George Brett, Rod Carew and Reggie Jackson.

    They were out of Jackson, so my aunt, being from the east coast and not knowing any better, got me Brett, Carew and Steve Garvey.

    The Brett and Carew were on my wall for years. Even at 6, there was no way in hell I was putting a Dodgers player on my wall.

    Some great Chicago posters in there, Bob ... especially that one of Jordan taking off from the free-throw line.

    I always liked this one, too:

    I can remember having posters plastered all over my walls. Funny though, my posters had the likes of Ricky Williams, Randy Moss, Chad Pennington, etc on them.

    Still to this day have a poster of Davey Allison on the wall.

    A copy of this hangs in his downtown Cleveland sports bar.
