It took an amazing eight gold medals in a single Olympic games – but finally, our customers are desperately seeking Michael Phelps posters! It will likely be a couple of months before anything specifically commemorating his Beijing 2008 performance will be released, but in the meantime, we’ve added two spectacular posters to our selection. First, there’s “Ready…” (see pic above), an intense, patriotic beauty released in June 2008. Published for distribution to Sports Authority stores by Speedo in anticipation of the Olympics, very few of these ended up in customers’ hands. We were lucky enough to obtain a small quantity from a Boston-area memorabilia dealer, and are making them available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Also available is this step back in time, “Athens Haul”, to his last eight-medal performance (6 gold, 2 bronze). A classic collector’s item, officially licensed by the USOC:
