25000 For Jesse James Poster

These are exact replicas of actual Wanted Posters, Railway Circulars, Pinkerton Circulars, Exhibit Notices, and Vigilante Notices from about 1849 to 1900. Once a Wanted Poster Reward got big enough it usually resulted in the outlaws death or capture. Jesse James is a fine example of this.

Posters are $15 each, or order 2 or more and pay 10 dollars each. Pick and choose from 28 posters to make up your order.

The Killing {Assassination?} of Jesse James
The James-Younger Gang seldom strayed far from Missouri – except to do their robberies; confident their friends and family would hide them out. Once the reward got to 25,000 for Jesse it was just a matter of time before the dirty little coward (Bob Ford), would kill Mister Howard (Jesse James), as he stood on a chair to straighten a picture, in his own home.

As word spread of Jesse’s death – Bob and his brother Charlie raced to the telegraph office and cabled Governor Crittenden:

I have killed Jesse James. St. Joseph. Bob Ford“.

Jesse’s two murdering cousins rushed back to the James House, now swamped with curious onlookers. Spotting the local authorities, the brothers rushed up and staked their claim to the infamous deed.

I’m Bob Ford,” gasped Bob, “ I shot him“.

I’m Charlie Ford,” gushed his brother, “I saw him“.

  • Wild Bill Hickok Poster - James Butler Hickok The prototype of the old west pistol fighter, Bill Hickok had the size, the sad eyes and the heroic exploits to make an impression on most anybody. When Dave Tutt bragged he could, "Shoot a bird on the wing"  in Springfield, 1865, Bill Hickok was quick to reply, "Did the crow have a pistol? Was he shooting back? I will be." There's a number of reasons people say Hickok and Tutt fought, but what ever it was this is about the only actual documented face off in a dusty street in Old West History. And so on July 21, 1865, in the town square of Springfield, Missouri, Hickok shot dead Davis Tutt, Jr. All Authentic Wanted Posters Package Legends of the West Posters Package Original Wild West Poster Line
