About this Item

Popular Midwest wrestling champions of the '50s and '60s, each holder of many titles, who formed a celebrated tag wrestling team. Most unusual oversize IPS, heavy stock 16" X 20", St. Charles, IL, 1960 October 14. Near full-length side-by-side shot depicting Gilbert and Goelz in wrestling trunks against a white background, each taking off their coat as if entering the ring. Gilbert, at left, inscribes boldly to the right of his legs in red ballpoint: "To Donald M. Burnell / A true and wonderful / Wrestling fan Your friend / in Sports always / Johnny Gilbert / Oct 14 - 1960 / St. Charles Livestock Center, / St. Charles Illiones." [sic] Goelz, at right, inscribes boldly at upper right in blue ballpoint: "To a wrestler's best friend / Donald M. Burnell / Best of Luck and of everything / Your friend always / Billy Goelz / Fox Lake wrestler / Oct. 14, 1960 / St. Charles Livestock / Center / St. Charles, Ill." This handsome and most unusual item was likely created for some cryptic promotional purpose, but it bears no photographer's credit or other identifications recto or verso. Choice vintage piece from the "Golden Age of Wrestling" -- likely one of a kind in this large format. Superb for display. Bookseller Inventory # 20151
