After leading Cal to the Rose Bowl, the CFL's B.C. Lions to the Grey Cup, and the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl, Joe Kapp will forever be remembered as one of football's greatest all-time winners. Then, as coach of Cal in 1982, he led the team to the impossible upset of John Elway's Stanford squad, that ended with "The Play", the five-lateral game-winning kickoff return through the already-marching marching band!
This breathtaking image, published in poster size exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, features the the legendary Vikings star during his magical three-season run in Minneapolis, during which he led the franchise to its first-ever playoff appearance (1968) and first Super Bowl appearance (Super Bowl IV). One of the few Hispanic athletes to make it as a pro quarterback, Kapp is a beloved role model in the Latino community as someone who fought against stereotyping with quiet perseverance, and bucked the odds to reach the pinnacle of his profession.
Published as part of our NFL Legends series, this full-color, full-sized beauty harkens back to the glory days of football, when the Vikings-Packers rivalry was just starting to heat up. Untainted by distracting graphics or gaudy titling, printed on high-quality photographic stock, and affixed with an official NFL Properties serialized hologram, this brilliant piece will bring back a flood of memories with every glance, and brighten up the wall of any true Vikings fan!
