I had that particular Elway poster, along with several others. There was another similarly themed poster along the lines of Top Gun, but I can't remember the exact details.

I had the rifleman and the top gun elway posters. The top gun one had Elway in a bomber jacket and super tight jeans standing in front of an F14.

The 3 amigos had a super gay one of them in their game day pants and just the shoulder pads and sombreros. I had that one autographed by all three of then at Southwest Plaza one year. Thank god they were wearing their shirts in the mall.

I think it was the same photoshoot, but there was one that actually said "Top Gun". Probably on the heels of the movie.

I had all the cheeseball posters like 'The Gunslinger' and 'Top Gun' in my room when I was a kid.

I preferred the classic Sports Illustrated type posters when I was kid, but living in Ohio, I had to take what I could get.

I still have all my old posters rolled up in my garage somewhere.

I remember having a cheesy Broncos shirt during the losing Super Bowl years.

It said 'Total Domination' on it and had some cheesy colors and some of the players on it.

I never liked the shirt, but Broncos gear was hard to come by where I lived in the mid to late 80s, so if there was Broncos gear at the mall, I bought it.

You couldn't wear that shirt after a Super Bowl ass kicking without hear 1000 'Total Domination' remarks, so I kept it in my drawer.

Wow these are terrible.

They were terrible....and disappeared from my bedroom walls when I started sneaking chicks in my room in high school.

Nothing like trying to get your first piece of ass with 'The Gunslinger' and 'Top Gun' overseeing operations.

Of course I replaced those with some even cheesier 'Beastie Boy's posters....but at least the girls liked those ones.

This is truly the dumbest idea for a poster name that I've ever seen.

HA! that one is pretty awesome.

There's something about McEnroe as a sports icon that cracks me up, i cant put my finger on it. Its like if Larry David once ruled the tennis world.

Those Nike posters were the goods. Example:

I definitely had the Top Gun Elway poster, as well as the Three Amigos.

I also had a signed Mizuno Elway poster, with him in his game uniform, "You should be in his shoes" written across the bottom.

OH, and the "Quarterback Sneaks" poster with Elway and Montana. That was a good one.
