This is one of those times where I have to put on my man pants and tell my wife where it will be prominently displayed in our home and not ask "if". I will let you know how that goes, :mrgreen: ! Very happy with how this turned out, Kudos to Phillip for his many hours of great work in photoshop making this look so nice.

Shoutout to Phillip (propayne) for his work on these, scanning his original copy and meticulously recreating the text elements. It looks awesome.

Thanks - it was (is) a team effort.

While we wouldn't want anyone to try and pass one of these off as original on eBay (there are VERY slight differences) these will be extremely faithful reproductions that should look great.

Can't wait to hang mine up!

- Phillip

That's funny. Let me know if you need advice on convincing your wife. My older reproduction of this poster is hanging in my billiard room which used to be our formal living room. Ask me how I accomplished that one.

It wasn't tile, nor cooking dinner. It was simply persuasion skills.

Sent the link to the Missus and said it would make a perfect Birthday gift. Now when she buys it that will automatically circumvent the entire "not hanging it in the Rec Room" issue...
