A Heisman Trophy legend at Oklahoma, Billy Sims was the NFL's #1 overall draft choice in 1980, and he did not disappoint. Before Barry Sanders, there was THIS superstar #20 in silver and blue, leading the offensive charge with power, speed and style, rushing for over 1,000 yards three times, and representing the NFC at the Pro Bowl in 1980, 1981 and 1983. After successive playoff seasons, just when things were looking good for the Lions future and Sims' Hall-of-Fame legacy - it all came crashing down in one horrible moment, when in the 1984 season Billy's knee gave out, and his career was over.
This poster, a SportsPosterWarehouse.com exclusive, brings you back to a truly promising time in Lions history, the early 1980s, when Billy Sims brought hope and glory to long-suffering Lions fans. It is the perfect image of the superstar on gameday - intensely staring down the opposition defense, raring to go, ready to bulldoze through the line for another big gain. Harkening back to the good 'ole days of sports posters, this beauty is unspoiled by distracting graphics or silly titles - just sharp, colorful NFL action! Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official NFL Properties serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come.
