Every sports fan has heard about, or seen "The Catch". Dwight Clark of the San Francisco 49ers made an almost impossible catch of a Joe Montana pass the give the 49ers the lead and win over the Dallas Cowboys on January 10, 1982 in the NFC Championship Game.
This 8-1/2 by 11 inch photo commemorates that catch. At the top it says "10th Anniversary" and the bottom say "The Catch San Francisco 49ers" and has 49er helmets.
The photo itself measures about 7-1/4 by 9-1/2 inches. The photo was originally a press photo taken on the day of "The Catch". I was told that around the time of the 10th anniversary that a photography studio took several of the photos, applied them to a black mat and added laminate. They were then offered for sale. I have searched all over the internet and can find no others that were ever bought or sold, so I guess people who purchased them held on to them.
I recently attended the estate sale of a huge 49er's Fan. I purchased some great photos of past players, some autographed. Please check my listings to see these one-of-a-kind private photos.
You'll notice in my photo that there are some whitish glares. I took the photo outside and no matter what angle I tried, I could not keep the glare of the sunlight out of the picture. There are no tears or major bends in the photo.
The picture will be protected by cardboard and mailed in a padded envelope. By doing that, it will exceed the postal limit of 1/4 of an inch in thickness and can not be mailed by regular envelope mail. It will be sent by USPS First Class Mail Parcel. Buyer to pay $3.99 delivery charges.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items will safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
