I'd go to Baltimore for a chance to see Waldo in action at his peak.  Also the Valentine-Pugliese team before the breakup sounds promising.

Chi-town by a landslide. The Green Hornet on the Baltimore card was actually Waldo Von Erich. Plus.....here we go again....we have Luis Martinez in St. Louis and Chicago. I doubt Luis made enough to be able to fly and driving would have been impossible.

I'd go to the Chase in St. Louis just to see how the experience was of the studio wrestling there. Heard a lot about it and would've liked to experienced it.

Absolutely.  This was during Beyer's relatively short passage through AWAland under The Destroyer tag before being brought back as Dr. X a few months later.

Also the Assassins were in Their prime during this time.

This would have been my first choice as it looks to be the best card on the date..BUT

I went with this one simply because I always wanted to see Bogni and Lubitch-especially against Skull and Brute. Add to that the original Minnesota Wrecking Crew AND Luther Lindsay? This one is the keeper for me.

These Assassins were Guy Mitchell & Joe Tomasso, not Tom Renesto & Jody Hamilton.

May 21, 1966 was the air date of the St. Louis card, not the taping date.
