The 1980s Had Some Good Posters. Usually.

By John Turney

This one is not bad. It features Cowboys Harvey Martin and Ed "Too Tall" Jones, who paired at defensive end from 1974-83. It's a Nike poster, and they usually did a bit better in concepts but this one neither stands out nor offends. Give it a B-.

One oddity, while Martin is holding an authentic helmet and the pants and socks seem authentic. The jerseys they are wearing are not the official Cowboys jerseys. The "2" on Jones's jersey is wrong and the stripes on both are too thin. But, leave it to us to notice.


  1. ugh. the pants got way too blue. almost Oiler blue. better than seafoam green, though.
