Thanks for sharing....went through my collection and found this one but it is trimmed. If you are ever wanting to part with your postcard please let me know about it. Thanks.

A question for WrestlingCardKing ...

I see you have the #1 Frank Gotch set on PSA. Why is he listed under Non-Sports? And why are sooo many of his postcards not considered part of his Master Set?

I'm sure you've dealt with PSA on these issues and I'm wondering what their rationale is.

jeff

wrestlingcardking 01-07-2017 10:49 AM

My best guess is that many postcards do not have information on the company that produced them so there is information lacking on how to label them....I totally understand that.

As for non-sports I think that is pretty silly and at some point you can move over wrestling when it went to "entertainment" but in reality it would just be simpler if they included them in sports. I am going to try and get some different Gotch postcards graded by PSA that have not been graded to date because it should have enough information to do so.....wish me luck.

Yeah. Anybody that thinks what Gotch and Hack were doing at that time was anything like WWF is clueless.

jeff

P.S. Good luck getting your PCs graded!

wrestlingcardking 01-21-2017 09:28 PM

I have three postcards of Frank Gotch that are spares and are graded by PSA. Get a hold of me if you are interested in them....maybe we can trade......

jefferyepayne 01-25-2017 08:29 PM

Sent you a PM, King. Here are a few others I've been able to pick up.

Gotch
 
Nice postcards, I have each of those......love the one with him and the car. I used to go to the NCAAs each year but haven't as I got into coaching and directing the association freestyle tournaments in my area so I have not been in a while. You headed to St.Louis this year?

Absolutely. My Dad and I have been there 27 straight years now. It's become our father / son yearly event.

I grew up in PA so am in heaven these days with Penn State doing so well!

jefferyepayne 01-25-2017 08:53 PM

Do you collect memorabilia from Olympic or HOF wrestlers too? I have some photos / autographs of these as well.

jeff

Olympic Tickets
 
I have Olympic wrestling tickets from 1928 until now and just missing Tokyo and Barcelona to have them all. It is just something that I have done for fun. I have a ton of amateur wrestling cards and where my collection started.

I just traded for 9 Gotch postcards tonight so I may have some extras by the end of the week....I think that 6 are duplicates or maybe 7

wrestlingcardking 02-13-2017 10:58 PM

I picked up another 11 Frank Gotch postcards this morning....I should have them by Thursday or Friday.

wrestlingcardking 03-27-2017 08:44 AM

I got this graded and this is a great addition to my collection of Gotch and Hackenschmidt items.

This large cabinet is not of Gotch but the man who trained Gotch. Farmer Burns.

Not much info on Gotch's son, but found this interesting tidbit:

"Sandow was able to get photos of Lewis posing with 12 year old Frank Gotch Jr in newspapers all over the nation on February 20. The Strangler claimed that Gotch senior had taught him many things early in his career and he was going to pass the knowledge on to Junior. Lewis promised to take Junior "in tow" and make a wrestling champion out of him, just like his Dad. It was brilliant PR by Sandow but, 20 years later, Junior was working as a financial analyst in Houston. I also found it funny that the report called Lewis the ex-champion."

This one's been shown here but it's my only Gotch. Picked it up a few months ago on COMC when they had a big sale going.

wrestlingcardking 10-09-2018 11:54 PM

Very nice, if you are looking for more cards from the 16 card Max Rigot series let me know. I have a good selection of them yet as I look to upgrade my set.

The writing is part of the photo.

Thank you!

wrestlingcardking 07-14-2019 09:12 AM

I found that i have a healthy stack of Frank Gotch postcards if anyone is interested in them. My duplicates are more out of hand than I thought! I have been actively collecting these over the last 15 plus years and always willing to add more that I do not have.
