got this Purdue vs. Northwestern baseball game
poster about eighteen
years ago, from Posters Plus in Chicago. That was way before the
internet when collectors read the Antique Trader and went to
shows. As I recall I saw an ad for Posters Plus and cold called
them to see if they had any sports posters.
The guy I spoke with told me about this poster plus a football
one for Chicago vs. Northwestern. I seem to recall I paid about
$300.00 each for them.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF POSTERS
the genera of antique sports posters you have sub categories.
Some advertise products, such as cereal or clothing or
cigarettes. An offshoot of that type would be those that
advertise periodicals/magazines and books, referred to as literary posters.
There were also incentive posters with sports themes, most
notably by Mather. Incentive posters were displayed in the work
place by employers to promote integrity and increase
were also posters issued by railroads which advertised special
excursions to sports events, referred to as excursion posters.
you have school or team issued event posters which advertised
upcoming athletic events. Typically they were posted around a
campus or within traveling distance of the event. These event
posters are often called broadsides, an archaic term early
posters were referred to as. Antique sports event posters are
significantly rare, because they were intended to be torn down
and thrown away after the event. Usually the older they are the
more basic, having little to no graphics, they relied on
the message text to draw people.
