Like many others, I have a love and fascination with vintage sports films and photographs. The images are both historic and nostalgic, and cause the mind to conjure thoughts of a simpler era and “the way it used to be.”
Sports from the 1920’s to the mid 1970’s were definitely different. This was a time before sports became the really big business it has become today. World Series games were all played in day, there was no free agency and mega million dollar player 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 memories they created were captured on 16mm motion pictures and photographs. It was an important part of American sports history and has provided the inspiration for my work.
I have been involved in sports throughout my life as a player, fan, photographer, documentary producer, and a Sport Management college 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 time 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.
