About this Item

One of the most powerful figures behind the scenes of professional wrestling was this influential Chicago promoter, who some credit with singlehandedly engineering the "Golden Age of Wrestling" of the 1940s and '50s. Quite unusual matte-finish IPS, heavy stock 16" X 20", Chicago, IL, 1959 October 23. Near fine. Superb formal half-length portrait of a seated Kohler in suit and tie, inscribed large and bold in blue ballpoint in a darkish area at upper left: "To Donald M. Burnell / Lots of luck & best wishes / Fred A Kohler / Oct. 23, 1959 / Chicago, Ill." This very attractive, very 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. Kohler is surprisingly uncommon. Superb for display. Bookseller Inventory # 20152
