    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $145 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

And wipe the grin off his big black face."; "Now this award winning talent has been reunited for an unparalleled motion picture achievement..."; "Screenplay by Howard Sackler based on his play."; a fictionalized biography of legendary heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson, an incredible African American boxer who encountered many problems due to his refusal to be treated as a second class citizen.
