When the Washington Post’s Tom Curran and Bill Buford first started digging into Washington Post posters in 2014, they were excited by the amount of football memorabilia they found.
“We were really hoping to get the best of what the Post had to offer and that’s just what we found,” Curran said.
“So much football memoriams, it was pretty amazing.”
As they delved deeper into the archives, the Post began to realize just how many football posters existed.
It was a bit of a shock to find so many that had nothing to do with football at all.
“It’s a shame, because if you go to the Washington State Cougars, for instance, there’s a poster that’s a picture of a couple getting married,” Currans said.
“It was all football.
So there’s something really interesting about it.
But it was all sports.”
And, of course, that wasn’t the only thing they found in the Post’s archives.
There were some posters about basketball, too, with the Post listing some of its favorites.
“One poster, you can see, it’s about a college basketball team in college basketball.
There’s a shot of a guy, the face, with a basketball,” Curbin said.
It’s also a good look at the rivalry between the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers, Curran noted.
“I’m not sure that we’ve seen a poster like that in a long time,” he said.
And then there were posters about the NFL.
“There’s one poster about a guy on the football field who’s got a helmet on,” Currants said.
The poster was captioned: ‘Walking around in the stadium, a couple of weeks ago, I was told that he’d been hit by a football and was hospitalized.
He’s still fighting for his life.’
“There were posters from the 1970s and ’80s that featured players and coaches, including Hall of Famers Pete Rozelle and Brett Favre.”
The guy with the helmet is the guy who got hit,” Currant said.
The only other one is one from the ’80 (s), where you can also see Brett Favres face and it’s the one you see in this poster. “
That’s probably the most iconic poster of all time.
The only other one is one from the ’80 (s), where you can also see Brett Favres face and it’s the one you see in this poster.
It says, ‘Here he is, Brett Favors, the most famous NFL quarterback.
There were other posters from that era, too. “
The poster also had a picture captioned, ‘Favre, Favre, here’s what it’s like to be a Green Bay Packer.'”
There were other posters from that era, too.
You’ve got a poster of a Packers fan at the stadium,” Curren said.
He added, “There’s a guy with a helmet, with his face covered and a Packers hat.
And there’s another poster of Brett Favress with his head down and a helmet.
He was an icon.
“Curran said there were even posters about some of the NFL’s more obscure teams, like the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers.”
The whole poster is just about a football player.”””
And then he’s got his hands behind his back.
The whole poster is just about a football player.””
And you can even see a guy who’s wearing a Steelers hat, or a Raiders hat,” Currins added.”
And then you can have this guy walking around the stadium with a Steelers jersey on, and that was the poster of the Steelers,” he added.
“The other poster that I saw was the Giants.
And even more intriguing, Currants discovered, was that a few of the posters featured actual football players.””
He’s got this big smile on his face and his whole face is like a giant smile.”
And even more intriguing, Currants discovered, was that a few of the posters featured actual football players.
“These were actually players that played for the Washington Redskins and some of those posters have football players in them, but they don’t have the actual name of the player on the poster,” he noted.
“So it’s hard to say exactly who that person is, but that’s what they are.
It would be hard to tell a guy’s name if you didn’t know his name.”
So what are the best posters in the WashingtonPost archives?
Curran and Bufords goal was to find the poster that most accurately depicted what a football fan saw, hear, or felt during a game.
They ended up looking at the Post, where more than 100 football posters were archived, but there were many more posters they didn’t recognize.
“But when we went to the Archives, we did notice that there were a lot of football
