  • 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

Cody appeared in it, as did another well-known scout, Texas Jack Omohundro, as well as Buntline. Reviews of Cody's acting were mixed but he was a natural in front of an audience, and actor or not, Buffalo Bill was a showman.By the time Bill died in 1917, he had laid the ground work for the modern rodeo and was the most recognizable person on earth.

  • Black Bart Outlaw Poster - The Outlaw Poet Bart's first stagecoach robbery was reported in August of 1877. His method was simple - he'd wait for the stagecoach around a tight corner, with flour sack over his face (with two holes cut/ripped for the eyes) derby on his head, and shotgun in his arms wearing a long, linen duster. He'd exchange the contents of the strong box for a copy of some poetry and always signed it, Black Bart, PO-8. Bart was eventually caught - did his time - then disappeared into the pages of old west lore. All Authentic Wanted Posters Package Legends of the West Posters Package Original Wild West Poster Line
  • George Armstrong Custer Poster - Colonel U.S. 7th Cavalry Not only was Ulysses Grant a real military genius, he was an astute politician. In 1875 President Grant knew there was a possibility that George Custer could be the Democratic Candidate for the Presidency in the next election. Grant knew Custer; knew he was charismatic, liked to talk, and knew how to do it. Everything the President wasn't. So President Grant had Custer transferred out west, knowing that there'd be a good chance Custer would get himself killed. Custer couldn't help himself, and on June 25, 1876 his headstrong, break-neck attack methods sealed his fate, and that of his command against the 2000 or more Sioux and Cheyenne at the Little Big Horn or Greasy Grass River.

    Originally the term "silver belly" referred to the belly fur of the beaver. By the mid 20th century it came to only identify a specific color. Belly Beaver Fur Felt is the thickest and densest of the beaver hat bodies. Virtually waterproof, it consists of 100% belly beaver fur blended with felt to produce a strong hat body very soft to the hand.

    $390.00$810.00
    This is our take on the Angelica Hat from the 4th adventure for The Pirates of the Caribbean{2011} This distinctive wide brimmed hat is quite a looker, and Angelica under it doesn't hurt either!

  • Billy The Kid Poster - William H. Bonney II He was twenty-one and boldly bragging he'd killed 21 men, as he stood trial for his life. Hard men were all about the kid, with sidearms on their hips and rifles in their hands. The wild young man was found guilty and on April 8, 1881, was sentenced by Judge Warren Bristol to hang by the neck until "dead, dead, dead." On April 28, Pat Garrett went off to buy lumber for the gallows, and Billy went to work. There are three different stories on how Billy got his hands on a firearm that morning, but get one he did, and then The Kid cheerfully shot Deputies Bell and Ollinger, and escaped the makeshift jail at Lincoln, New Mexico. Pat Garrett later said, "I knew now that I would have to kill the Kid. We both knew that it must be one or the other of us, if we ever met." Billy was dead barely 2 months later from a bullet in the back from Garrett hiding in ambush.

  •  Wild Bunch Poster

    William Carver, Kid Curry, The Sundance Kid, The Tall Texan, Butch Cassidy. The Wild Bunch was a loose association of up to a dozen outlaws who banded together under the leadership of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to rob banks, trains, and rustle horses and cattle.

  • Sundance Kid and Etta Place Poster - It's unlikely there's a more shadowy figure in the Old West than Etta Place. There is no doubt that this was not her real name, as Place was the Maiden name of Harry's (the Sundance Kid) mother, and other women that were associated with the Wild Bunch used the alias also. Virtually nothing is known of her other than the fact she was reputed to be a school teacher, but there's some that say she was a Texas prostitute that Butch Cassidy took under his wing and gave a fake history as a school Marm, so she could have a new start. A stunning, timeless, beauty - she was seldom seen without the Sundance Kid, and they often traveled together as man and wife.   NOTE: Our name is on the website photo and NOT on the actual poster.
