This is one of the coolest Bear Bryant prints around. It portrays the winningest coach of all time, (at least in my eyes anyway!), in his natural place on the grid iron, leaning against the goal post surveying the field during pre-game warm ups!!
Here he is decked out in his sport coat and legendary hounds tooth hat with his game plan in his hand, ready for a battle against his arch rival’s, the Auburn Tigers, in the 1981 Iron Bowl. Little did he know that this win would give him the record of 315 wins.
In the bottom center margin of the piece is the title of the print, “Bear” and these words:
Legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant surveys the field prior to the start of the 1981 Iron Bowl. Alabama wins the contest 28-17 giving Coach Bryant his 315th win.
In the far right bottom margin reads November 28, 1981.
This print is also personally signed by the artist himself, Greg Gamble.
This signed mini-print is “Professionally Framed” in a 1 1/2″ Dark Cherry Moulding with a gold lip and measures approximately 14 1/2 X 19 1/2″ inches. It is double matted in a Crimson Suede outer matte and a black inner. Inset in the mattes is a commemorative Bear Bryant coin.
You sure don’t want to miss this one. It is newly framed and ready to hang.
