About this Item

This Canadian Native American wrestlers, known as "Marvelous Mohawk," was one of the greatest box office attractions of the early days of televised wrestling; he won the best-of-three-falls AWA World title in 1950, but had it taken away three days later in a controversial incident during a match with Gorgeous George; he died at age 41 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, an apparent suicide. IPS (magazine stock), 7" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1960]. Very good. Tape stains along some edges, but not affecting image or signature. Full-length publicity portrait of Eagle in Indian costume and full headdress, wielding a tomahawk. Page 14 from some unknown wrestling yearbook or program, featuring Eagle's likeness (image area 5¼" X 7") and the printed word "Autograph" with a printed line alongside it for signing -- Eagle inscribes it boldly in blue ballpoint: "Good Hunting -- Chief Don Eagle." Below this is a small printed caption reading: "No Indian since Geronimo has caused as much comment as Don Eagle. A Canadian, Don is married, weighs 218 pounds, stands 6'1" and took a fling into boxing before his wrestling career. During the Summer months the Eagle maintains a summer camp at Cayawaga, Canada." Despite flaw, a quite attractive and scarce piece. Bookseller Inventory # 20457
