Bob Uecker is the best. We love Bob Uecker. So let’s enjoy this poster for the 1988 edition of Bob Uecker’s Ride For The Arts! Uecker, the 13.5″ by 18.5″ poster reminds, was (and still is!) Milwaukee’s biggest card.
We recently picked this beauty up for $25 at Antiques on Pierce. And yes, we would have easily paid $100. Now you have a chance to buy it from us.
“Remember how much fun it was to clip a baseball card on a bike wheel?” the poster reads. “Of course, you wouldn’t use a good card, like a Mickey Mantle or a Willie Mays. But if you had a Bob Uecker, you were set!”
Classic stuff. Speaking of cards, the poster comes complete with a reprint of Uecker’s 1963 Milwaukee Braves baseball card. Uecker’s Ride For The Arts ran from 1981 until at least 1989. These days, the ride is simply known as the UPAF Ride For The Arts (presented by Miller Lite).
