290878 Ian Rush 1988
Welsh soccer star Ian Rush signed with Nike as their first soccer player in 1982. Rush was a Liverpool Soccer forward, all time goal scorer, who played for them from 1980 - 1987 and 1988 - 1996. He signed on with Juventis of the Italian League for 1986/87 season then returned to Liverpool. The presence of his stripped Ariston shirt tells us that this poster is from his year in the Italian league and fits as 1988.
Its 1988 date of issuance is firm based on sealed poster info and its presence in the Sept 1988 Nike poster catalog.
