Baseball posters are classic collectibles. They are in a class of their own when it comes to sports posters. The beauty in baseball posters is that they look aged even if they are brand new.
The Babe Bows Out
Baseball has produced many great legends, one in particular was Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth was one of only two people to ever hit three home runs in a World Series game and is the only one to do it twice, once in 1926 and then again in 1928. He not only dominated the game, but also improved it as well. He invented of the modern baseball bat. He was the first player to order a bat with a knob on the end of the handle. Louisville Slugger was the company that produced the bat.
Anaheim Angels and the World Series
The Anaheim Angels having had the worst record in team history finished up a magical recovery with the best mark after the regular season in 2002 winning the World Series Championship, the first in the history of the franchise.
There are many posters that captures a player's position in action.
- The pitcher, winding up, ready to throw a fast ball at 100 mph. He may be on his way to a no hitter.
- The batter, sees the ball and gets ready to strike it. The speed and curve of that ball may not be of any match for his powerful swing.
- The catcher, eyeing the ball...completely focused. The only way he will miss is if the ball doesn't reach him at all.
- And finally the outfielder, scopes up the ground ball and throws it with a mighty swing towards first base. He is determined to get the runner out.
Many sports posters are easily available today. These can be your favorite baseball stars or your favorite teams. Maybe it's a Pete Rose, Mickey Mantle or a Babe Ruth you are looking for.
