HALFTIME

The 1982 NFL season was shortened due to a players strike, sending the playoff schedule into January. On January 8, 1983, the Green Bay Packers hosted the St. Louis Cardinals at Lambeau Field in a first round NFC playoff game. Green Bay won 41 - 16 with quarterback Lynn Dickey throwing 5 touchdown passes, breaking Bart Starr's playoff record.

Freelance photographer David Bernacchi decided to walk around the stadium, in search of a different photograph, when he came upon this scene at the top row of the North end zone. He never thought much about the image, in fact it was first printed in 1997! It is now sold throughout the United States, Canada, and England and has become Bernacchi's "signature" image.


MILWAUKEE COUNTY STADIUM 1953 - 2000

No more hallowed ground exists in baseball than Milwaukee's County Stadium. Made famous by the likes of Henry Aaron, Warren Spahn, Robin Yount, and Paul Molitor along with the infamous gang of "Wallbangers", it was home to many boys & girls in love with America's pastime. Celebrate these memories with a poster by David Bernacchi. His images made during it's final year of existence, provide a nostalgic memory to viewers of all ages.

The centerpiece of the poster is his iconic Milwaukee County Stadium Opening Day 1999 image. On April 16, 1999 the Milwaukee Brewers hosted the Chicago Cubs in what was presumed to be the last opening day ever at historic Milwaukee County Stadium. In June of that year a sad and tragic accident happened at the construction site of the new stadium, Miller Park, taking the lives of three construction workers. Construction was delayed, and forced the venerable old stadium to be home for one more season. Great for holiday giving or anytime to those who remember and loved the Braves and the Brewers.


BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN POSTER

Robert Cavallo originally became involved in the Rock 'n' Roll era from the other side of the lens as the drummer for The Messengers, a Motown recording artist that released its first album on the Rare Earth label. While traveling on tour, Cavallo always kept a camera at hand to capture the best moments on and off stage. When the group disbanded in 1972, Cavallo returned home and joined his fatherís photography business. Utilizing his concert promoter connections, Cavallo rarely missed a concert and captured great bands such as Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, Queen, Pink Floyd, and The Who. Cavalloís photographs offer an interesting perspective only gained from his intimate first-hand experience in the cultural and historical happenings of the Rock 'n' Roll era.

Of all the many concerts that he photographed, the Bruce Springsteen event at the Uptown Theater on October 2, 1975 in Milwaukee, WI was probably the most memorable one. Early in the show a bomb threat was called in and the theater had to be cleared. The audience was told to keep their ticket stubs and the concert would continue after the building was checked out. At about midnight, Springsteen started up the show and played until the wee hours of the morning.
