This poster was designed for to celebrate the World Ice Hockey Championships played in Prague, Czeckoslovakia in 1978. This original print is unlined and in overall good condition with pinholes in extreme corners and cardboard support corners on bottom reverse of poster. We think this would look great in any bedroom or man cave!

Want to know more? According to Wikipedia, "The 1978 Ice Hockey World Championships took place from 26 April to 14 May. Eight teams took part, with each team playing each other once in the first round, and then the four best teams meeting in a new round. The USSR won for the fifteenth time, narrowly defeating the incumbent Czechoslovaks.

On the final day, there was essentially a gold medal game, and a bronze medal game. The Soviets played the Czechoslovaks and needed to win by at least two to win the Championship. They took a three nothing lead, and hung to win by two, capturing gold by being even head to head with the Czechoslovaks, but having a cumulative two goal advantage against everyone else. Canada and Sweden came into the final game even, so the winner would claim the bronze."
