Here is a One of a Kind Authentic ALASKA Iditarod Poster with autographs including 6 past winners of the Last Great Race.
I lived in Alaska from 1996 to 2001. I always went to the start of the Iditarod every year. Since I knew that the race in 2000 would be my last race ( due to moving back to the lower 48 ), I wanted to create a nice keepsake or memorabilia piece to remind me of all of the fun times I had attending the races over the years.
So the newspaper the day of the race in Anchorage featured a full page ad featuring a great shot of sled dogs. I figured that would be a great backdrop to obtain autographs from some of my favorite mushers past and present. I then walked up and down 4th Street finding the mushers that I wanted to sign the poster.
Not only did I get some great autographs, but 5 of the signatures are from past winners of the race.
Autographs include 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2001 Iditarod WINNER Doug Swingley = 4 X Champion and retired from the Iditarod. Martin Buser = 4 X Champion, Susan Butcher = 4 X Champion and the First Female to win multiple Iditarod's and who unfortunately passed away from cancer several years ago, Jeff King = 3 X Champion, Mitch Seavy multiple race Champion, and Ramy Brooks. Other popular mushers who signed it are Dee Dee Jonrowe, Tim Osmar, Paul Gebhardt, and lastly fan favorite retired musher Charlie Boulding.
This is a rare 1 of a kind authentic piece of memorabilia from the Last Great Race on Earth that NOBODY else has. You would never be able to obtain all of these signatures anymore as some of these racers have passed on or retired.
I then had the poster professionally matted and framed there in Anchorage before I left. I have enjoyed this piece as it has always reminded me of the great time that I had living in the Last Great Frontier. But I have developed some health issues that are forcing me to downsize. I hate to part with this poster, but have made piece with the fact that I have enjoyed it for the last 19 years and feel it is time to pass it on to someone who will appreciate it as much as I have.
Thanks for looking and cheers!
