What more could a Bears fan ask for? This seldom-seen 1939 schedule poster is not only big, bright, and beautiful, but its preservation is exceptional and the design features photographic head shots of the team's star players! Osmanski, Luckman, Patterson, Bausch, Musso, and Masterson represent George Halas's "Team of Stars," which finished the season with an 8-3 record. Their home schedule is listed along the bottom, just above copyright information of the Chicago-area publisher, Winterburn Print, Inc. The three-sheet, linen-backed poster measures a huge 41-1/2" x 82". It was obviously folded up and carefully stored soon after its first usage, as its delicate paper surface has been dutifully protected from the elements of excessive heat, light or moisture. Condition is apparent Near Mint with a fresh overall presentation and a small number of color touch-ups originating from the linen backing process. This stunning poster truly needs to be seen first-hand for full appreciation of its visual grandeur.
