His nickname was "Mr. Cowboy", and if anyone has ever deserved such a moniker, it was Bob Lilly. The first-ever draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 1961, the amazing defensive tackle was the cornerstone of the famed "Doomsday Defense", the 1961 Rookie of the Year, an 11-time Pro Bowler, a member of the NFL's 75th Anniversary Team, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, and the first player inducted into the Cowboys' "Ring of Honor". As Tom Landry once said, nobody was better than Bob Lilly!
This breathtaking image, published in poster size exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, features bad Bob from the glorious 1971 season, which ended in a bonecrushing 24-3 win over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI. Showing his ever-present gameday intensity, Lilly is seen taking a Bill by the horns during their opening-weekend victory, diving into the play to help take down hapless Buffalo Bills running back Wayne Patrick in the backfield. For long-time football fans, this is the ultimate image - monster tackling, old-school uniforms, and a vicious intensity that is rarely seen today. This is a full-color, full-sized beauty for your wall, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent place in your home or office! 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.
