Big Time Pawn

by Lee Roy Chapman





Big Time Pawn is a family-owned pawn shop located on Route 66 at 11th and Pittsburg in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over the years the proprietors have amassed the largest collection of local graphic designer Brian Thompson posters on public display.

Thompson made his mark in the poster world creating the great black and white handcut designs for the Old Lady on Brady, Cain’s Ballroom and Little Wing Productions. A brief history of his work can be found in the book, The Art of Rock.

Big Time Pawn also has on display memorabilia from the late Tulsa bassist Carl Radle.
