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. Williams was a fixture on early national wrestling telecasts out of Marigold Garden with tag team partner Ruby Kay; narrowly missed being part of the bloodiest wreck in wrestling history: on March 3, 1945, a flight from England to Paris carrying six (out of seven) pro wrestlers on a USO tour to entertain Allied troops crashed, killing all aboard; Williams missed this flight, and later that month wrestled at a Fred Kohler wrestling program in Chicago to raise funds for his colleagues' widows and children. 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 Williams and Goelz at a table signing autographs -- Williams signs across the tabletop boldly in red fineline marker. Gilbert stands behind them, raising a fist in mock threat -- he too signs boldly in red fineline across his white t-shirt. Bookseller Inventory # 22711
