Al Davis would have loved these Classic Oakland Raider posters of the All Time Great Raiders. These Vintage Oakland Raider posters were made from very rare images to produce unique posters. This is great Oakland Raider News.

The Raider Nation is known for its "black hole", a specific section of the McAfee Coliseum (Sections  104, 105, 106, and 107) frequented by the rowdiest and most fervent fans. No surprise at the fans "outlaw" costumes when the team's 70-80's players included  "The Assassin” (Jack Tatum), “Doctor Death” (Skip Thomas), "Snake" (Ken Stabler) and “The Mad Stork” (Ted Hendricks). (Chuck Noll, former Steeler's coach once described the Raider defensive backs as a "criminal element.")

Go see my Raiders live in The Black Hole section! And get my attire ready of course!

Defensive End Ben Davidson, Oakland Raiders. More Old School Greatness. He passed away in 2012 after a battle with prostate cancer. I was fortunate enough to meet him before he passes away.
