The fourth in the legends of rodeo series is an action portrait of James "Big Jim" Bynum and his great bulldoggin' horse, Ol' Blue. Together, they won four World Championships in steer wrestling, from 1954 to 1963. Had it not been for a bad knee injury to Big Jim after his last World Title, no doubt there would have been more World Championships to his credit.
Big Jim Bynum is an inductee in The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, The National Cowboy Hall of Fame and The Texas Sports Hall of Fame.
The number 17 casting is part of the Legends of Rodeo Collection at The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. The bronze also carries Big Jim's Signature.
