Original Poster produced by Adidas for the 1968 Mexico Olympics. This is a vintage poster and not a reproduction. 

Adidas, started in the early 1920s by a man named Adolf Dassler (in his mother's basement, no less) is an enormous German-based multinational sportswear conglomerate.  Although it is a popular urban myth that the name is an acronym for All Day I Dream About Sports, that phrase is formed from "Adi" (a nickname for Adolf) and "Das" (from "Dassler").

Poster is unlined and in good condition: ruffled extreme top edge and some folds visible in the image will flatten out when poster is framed.  From a private collection.
