About this Item

Gilbert was a popular Midwest wrestling champion of the '50s and '60s, holder of many titles, half of a celebrated tag team with Billy Goelz. Christy was another popular wrestling draw in the '50s. PS, 5" X 3½", n.p. [Chicago, IL], n.y. [July 1960]. Very good. Minor yellowish tape stain at each corner, not terribly disfiguring and well away from signatures. Original black-and-white snapshot, likely one of a kind, showing what appears to be an arena dressing room (probably Chicago's Amphitheatre) with Gilbert and a smiling Christy (looking a tad s***-faced) walking through a doorway, Gilbert apparently supporting Christy, who has his left arm about Gilbert's shoulders. At upper right, in red fineline marker, Gilbert inscribes it "Who's drunk / Johnny Gilbert." Beneath this, also in red fineline, Christy adds "or / Bill / Christy." A unique image of two stars hamming it up for a fan from the Golden Age of Wrestling. Bookseller Inventory # 22712
