This lithograph of Super Bowl III from 1969, signed by Joe Namath to my Fiance' in 1991 was signed at a Conair promotion signing at a mall in Atlanta.
The lithograph was given to my Fiance' by his father who supplied the ink for this piece. It remained in on his wall as a little boy and he put it away for safe keeping until 1991 when he brought it to the mall for Joe Namath to sign.
The artist of the litho is Gary Thomas and is still creating amazing lithographs of all types. The last picture shows the credit to Mr. Thomas and type of machine that was used to print the lithogram. It is also signed by Mr. Thomas, seen on the bottom right near Joe's right foot.
We are very curious to know if anyone has ever seen one of these prints. . . I have looked high and low on the internet with no success. I know that with a PERSONALIZED signature that seems to be more desirable . . . and a sweet story to go with it. The condition, well, it isn't the best. Pin holes in the corners where it hung on a little boys bedroom wall, and creases where it was stored for 20 some odd years. . . Does anyone have any idea of the value?
Thanks for any input! Will keep bringing goodies I find that have been handed down. . . I love this site! :) HAPPY COLLECTING!
