Poster Review: Griffey-The Next Generation Costacos Brothers Poster

Griffey-The Next Generation
Costacos Brothers Poster
Costacos Brothers came up with some great posters during the 80's and 90's, and this Griffey-The Next Generation poster was no different. The market for Griffey Jr. memorabilia is certainly immense. Particularly, for early pieces like this Jr. and Sr. poster. Reason being, well all I really need to say is that it's Jr. Before phenoms like Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg, there was Griffey Jr.

I'm not particularly sure on the exact year this poster was released, but I'm assuming it was in '88 or '89. The background lockers are littered with fun details from family photo's to a "Dad's Root beer" can. Also, the name and font on the poster was taken from a popular late 80's and early 90's television show, Star Trek-The Next Generation. How do I know this you might ask? Let's just say I was a dork phenoms back in the day.

This is really a tremendous poster that is of course, scarce today. Here are two "autographed" posters I was able to find on eBay: click here and click here for more poster reviews.


  1. I remember that one. I may have had that one on my wall. I had so many different posters. That was back in the day when poster were creative and cool. You don't see stuff like this anymore. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

  2. hahaha, the posters of old are def better. I don't think posters are as popular as they once were.

  3. I totally had that poster (with a couple of Griffey ones)! He was my favourite player during my teen years and I had beyond too much Griffey stuff.

    Check out the bin of fan letters he never read!
