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. Well-known pose showing the pair from the waist up, seated and bare chested, in front of an enormous reproduction of an old-time wrestling match. Both gaze intently off to the viewer's right. Goelz, at left, inscribes boldly across his bare chest in blue ballpoint: "to my very best fan / Donald M. Burnell / Loads of luck and best Wishes / from -- / Billy Goelz / Fox Lake Wrestler / Oct. 14, 1960 / St. Charles Livestock / Center / St. Charles, Ill." Gilbert, at right, inscribes boldly across his bare chest in red ballpoint: "To Donald M. Burnell / Best regards and great / success in life / Ill always be your friend / Yours in Sports / Johnny Gilbert / Michigan City Heavyweight king / Oct 14 -- 1960 / St. Charles livestock center / St. Charles Illinois." This 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 -- the pose is well known, though it's likely one of a kind in this large format. Superb for display. N° de ref. de la librería 20990
