    Reds Posters

    I've noticed the old Reds posters sell for big bucks on eBay, particularly Rose and Bench. That begs the question as to why the Reds don't reprint those posters and sell them at their gift shop? I'd love to have the poster of Rose rounding the bases with Harrelson in the background. I have a Concepcion poster, mint condition and framed, hanging in my garage. Used to have Bench, Knight, Seaver, and Soto. No idea where they're at now, however.

    I would have to guess that they would reprint those posters if they could, but for some reason for either financial or legal reasons I would guess they cannot.

    I have forever been looking for a team poster of the 1975 team. They are incredibly hard to find and I have no doubt there are others out there that would love to have one also.

    I've wondered the same thing myself. Maybe no one feels that they would sell enough to make up for the license fees, etc. Even though the original throwbacks bring big money, a reproduction would probably fetch much less. I still can't see how they wouldn't be a very popular item, though.

    I wish the Reds and Bengals would produce more throwback merchandise, with the Reds using the logo of the 70s and 80s and with the Bengals using the pre-1980 helmet with the block letters on the side. Reebok recently produced a cap with just the old Bengals helmet on it, but I have no idea how well they've sold.

    Or how about a throwback Fathead? They have a Boomer Esiason Fathead available at http://www.fathead.com, so why not a Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, or Davey Concepcion fathead?

    Pete Rose can't be in a Reds uniform on anything related to MLB, so a Pete Rose Fathead is out of the question unless they were to get fancy with some photoshop touchups.

    It looks like Fatheads are made from old photos, based on the Boomer Esiason fathead. As MLB doesn't have a problem selling autographed photos including Pete Rose, I don't see why MLB or Pete couldn't have a fathead made from an old photo of him diving into a base head first. Now would I want to purchase one? No. But I'm sure there are folks who would.

    The Reds aren't even permitted to retire his number 14. In honor of Pete, the Reds made the number of bats sticking out of the top of the Pepsi Power Stacks to add up to 14. They put 7 on each stack. Interesting tidbit I learned while taking the GABP tour.

    Re: Reds Posters

    2 years ago I was walking downtown and next to the Westin Hotel, there is this baseball card shop. I was looking at the posters and WOW....an origional Bench poster, and the 1976 team poster still in the wrap, thick with dust, 30 years old. I purchased them for $15 each.... A STEAL...

    They had a Morgan,Foster, an Seaver posters as well...should of purchased them too

    The Bench, and 1976 team poster is framed in my son's room.

    I e-mailed Jonny's Bench's web master and asked him the question about the poster. He said they are the property of the photogapher, not Bench, Reds, or MLB.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Re: Reds Posters

    The best posters, IMO, were the late 60's SI posters. They hardly had any writing on them - it was full color and awesome.

    I have three - a Chris Sabo, a Barry Larkin, and a '77 Bench SI reprint.

    Good stuff. I collect pennants though. Thank goodness for a downstairs den.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Re: Reds Posters

    Why did the Reds stop having Poster Days?

    They should bring Poster Day back, with todays players.

    I believe it would be as big a draw as Bobblehead give away games.

    That's awesome. I had, at one time, Bench '73, Seaver, Morgan, Knight, and Soto. You hardly ever see the Soto poster anywhere.

    I have a mint condition Rose 3000 hit poster framed and hanging in my garage. You may be able to find one on eBay.

    The Reds giveaways today do not compare to those back in the day. Bat day, batting glove day, helmet day, poster day, rain jacket day, etc. etc. etc.

    I've noticed the giveaways today are geared toward all fans whereas the giveaways back then were targeted for the kids mostly.

    If the Reds ever decided to have poster day again, it'd be cool if they used the same design as the old posters. Have the last name going across the top in big white letters.

    My son's room also has my old 1970's posters (Framed).

    1976 Team
    Johnny Bench
    Pete Rose (3000 hits)
    Pete Rose (Black & White spring training poster / 1973)
    Dave Concepcion
    Tom Seaver

    It is nice to step in and go back in time.

    I also have a Ray Knight poster in the garage.
