Fielding a well rounded roster of players with an especially strong defense, the 1986 New York Giants team towered over their opponents all season long, racking up a franchise best ever 14-2 record. Their menacing shadow grew even bigger in the postseason, with a 49-3 beatdown over the 49ers and a 17-0 win over the Redskins. The crowning moment of this magnificent season came in the Super Bowl, with a 39-20 triumph over the Broncos. In 1996, the madmen behind the Looney Tunes gang saw fit to honor this dominant team with a limited edition animation cel titled "Monster of the Gridiron". 

Here we number "175/250" of this delightful issue, which sees Bugs Bunny as quarterback, wrestler The Crusher as Lawrence Taylor, Gossamer the monster as Harry Carson and a befuddled Pete Puma as opposing quarterback John Elway. The work of Warner Bros. artist Tom McKimson, this captivating creation is professionally framed in excellent condition to overall dimensions of 24x21, with red, white and blue Giants color scheme triple matting. A total of (44) 1986 New York Giants Super Bowl XXI champions have signed this piece across the cel area around the matting, most with accompanying uniform number inscriptions.
