Unfortunately, the cheesy digicam I borrowed doesn't do them justice! Not to mention that terrible glare in the left pic - sorry! NEway, I can't believe how expensive these were to frame!! I went w/a graphite metal frame and the non-UV glass, which jacked the price up even more. Oh least, in the future, I can order other Graham Watson posters and swap these out for the news ones.

got the one on the left as my backround!alias 33

which one is that? I have the newest Oakley Lance poster in my office @work and it's larger than the ones on my wall, too.

This is my favorite and it is signed!!!Lazywriter

Cheap ass frame though. I need to get a black frame with actual glass, this is plastic that scratches.
Definitely cool! Is that from '99? Yea, new frame time! ;-) nmjtferraro

is now impossible to find unless you pay big $ on ebay for an unsigned one. I wish I would have gotten a few more. I am going to put it in this type of frame that I have my Ride for the Roses poster in. Simple black frame with glass will look better but I have just been too lazy to bring it in to my frame guy. I also have the Nike "bustin my ass" poster laminated but not hanging up in my place because it looks a little to "dorm room", but on EBay that thing often goes for over $90. The "Courage" poster unsigned has gone for ovr $150. Crazy.

Did you meet Lance and is that when it was signed, or was it signed w/o you seeing Lance?

I was fortunate enough this past summer to make it to the Pro Cycling Tour in NYC to see him and take pics, but no such luck getting an autograph or anything.

I got bought it from someone I met who had his wife sign it by Lance at the hotel he was staying at in LA after his win in 1999. Considering the "magnitude" of the accomplishment at the time and the I only paid $150 with the frame. This same poster now is $150 unsigned on ebay nowadays.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to meet him, but I am not usually too anxious to meet celebrities and am not an autograph collector. Picking this up was an unexpected thing but I was planning to get this particular poster (unsigned)regardless.
