Bob McCall is the artist for the poster.

It was folded at the time of printing and had fold wear and a tiny separation at the cross-fold. The fold lines are less prominent after restoration. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
