Father and son Canadian Native American wrestlers: Chief War Eagle was a moderately successful pro wrestler, but his son Don "Marvelous Mohawk" Eagle 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. Extremely unusual oversize IPS, heavy stock 16" X 20", n.p., n.d. [ca. 1960]. Near fine. Handsome matte-finish full-length portrait of a seated Chief War Eagle in full Indian headdress, with his son in his Indian-theme wrestling getup sitting on his knee. Across his chest, Chief War Eagle inscribes it boldly in blue ballpoint: "Best Wishes / Chief War Eagle." (As he writes across an Indian vest with decorative beadwork, the contrast is good but not superb.) Across his mostly-bare chest, Don Eagle also inscribes boldly in blue ballpoint: "Good Hunting / Don Eagle." This most unusual item was likely created for some promotional purpose, but it bears no photographer's credit or other markings recto or verso. Choice vintage piece from the "Golden Age of Wrestling" -- the pose is well known, though it's likely one of a kind in this large format. Very scarce father and son combination. Perfect for display.
