Boogie Art! The Famous Boogie Man Jam Poster

 "The Boogie Man" Jimmy Valiant is seen here with the original artwork for the Boogie Man Jam poster and t-shirt that were sold during the Boogie Jam Tour in the Mid-Atlantic territory in 1984. What a great photo taken by our buddy Jamie Colbert.

This original art is signed by artist Bill Stroud. It had been in storage in the Crockett archives for years until being purchased from Jackie Crockett by the Mid-Atlantic Gateway in 2009. It has since been re-sold and is in the hands of a private collector.

The art depicts many of the main event stars on that huge Boogie Jam tour that included Dusty Rhodes, Dick Slater, Greg Valentine, Ric Flair, The Assassins with Paul Jones, and of course the "Boogie Man" Jimmy Valiant.

A rare collectable indeed from one of the most successful events and tours for Jim Crockett Promotions in 1984.

We will feature more on the Boogie Man Jam in future posts.
