Dome is where the heart is...
Another vintage Costacos Brothers poster from our stash! Pat Swilling, Vaughan Johnson, Sam Mills and Rickey Jackson aka The Dome Patrol were the Saints linebacker corp of the late 80s, early 90s. During their reign, the Saints made four playoff appearances, including the franchise's first ever playoff appearance in 87 and also claimed one western division title. The Saints' defense led the league in least points surrendered and turnovers in 1991, and again in least points surrendered in 1992. The defense also boasted twenty-seven games giving up ten or fewer points, with five shutouts. The four linebackers made NFL history by collectively being named to the Pro Bowl in 1992.
This is one of the more collectible Costacos posters out there, last year one sold on eBay for $500!!!
