Vote on your Favorite Championship Belt Series Poster - 1st Round

New, comments

It’s a tournament of champions! Vote now on what poster was your favorite from the series!

The Championship Belt Series produced some great images of all-time great Bears players from the 100 years of history. (Check out the series by clicking on these links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, & Part 5.

A total of 38 posters were created to tell the story of who the best player was for the Bears and now we want to find out what poster was your favorite. I cut the posters down to 32 (removing the movie poster parodies of the late 90s and my first attempt at design with Ditka/Fortunato - those posters are in the NIT) and used a random number generator to create match ups.

What’s the best way to vote in something like this? Well, we’re looking for your favorite. It could be the overall aesthetic, the name of the match, the images used, if it makes you laugh, makes you want to put a copy on your wall, or a combination of all of those factors. There is no wrong answer on this one!

We’ll start with the bracket followed by the posters and a poll for each match. We’ll determine winners for this round after about 24 hours of voting and try to post the next round the following day. Check back for future voting!
