Due to a series of changes in the makeup of conferences, has been required to remove many of the posters which we had previously offered for sale. This game is one of the posters affected.

Hopefully this will be only a temporary setback. You can contact us at if you wish to inquire about any prospects of reinstatements for the upcoming holidays. You will receive a prompt and personal reply. We thank you for your patience, and more than share your frustration.

Twenty-Three years after starring on an Alabama eleven that coach Frank Howard called "my greatest team," Paul "Bear" Bryant returned to Tuscaloosa to restore glory to the once proud Crimson Tide program. And did he ever. Fresh from similar resurrection jobs at Kentucky and Texas A&M, Bryant took over a team that had won a grand total of four games in the previous three years, and from that point it was lights out.
First year: The first winning record since 1953. Second year: the first win over Auburn, and the first bowl appearance, in six years. By the fourth year the National Championship banner flew once again over the Alabama campus.
This picture of the "Bear" was on the press guide handed out to reporters at the start of the season, and was his first appearance on the cover of any University of Alabama publication. There would be many more of these to come.
