Like many others, I have a fascination and love for vintage sports films and photographs. The images are both historic and nostalgic, and conjure thoughts of a simpler era and the "way it used to be."
Sports from the 1920's to mid 1970's were definitely different. This was a time before sports became the big business it as become today. World Series games were all played in the day, an there was no free agency and mega-milliondollar contracts. The 24-hour all sports networks had not yet signed on.
There were many legendary names in sports during that period. Their glorious play and the memories they created were captured on film and in photographs. It was an important part of American Sports History and has provided the inspiration for my work.
I have been involved in sports my throughout my life as a player, fan, photographer, documentary producer, and a Sport Management professor.
Classic Sports Pictures was formed because I really like old sports films and photographs and my own nostalgic experiences and memories of my youth in the 1960's.
I put considerable thought and effort into each finished piece. The ultimate goal is to produce unique and distinctive vintage sports wall hangings you will be proud to display and others will enjoy looking at and talking about.
