Thanks to dbaker3179, I've added quite a few more cards for 1978.

EDIT: And from 1979.

Quite a lot added since I last bumped this, including various attempts to run Wichita Falls in the 1940s and 1950s.

Added cards from San Angelo, TX for 1976 and 1977 thanks to David Baker.

Do you experts from this area believe there was a card on March 25, 1963 in Abilene where high-schooler Terry Funk appeared more than two years before his "debut"?
Check out this clipping from the Abilene Reporter, March 22, 1963 https://www.dropbox.com/s/vcza97mgjm37b61/15109541_10209857188240062_145183610792075498_n.jpg?dl=0

That card is from 1968, not 1963.

You are correct.  On newspapers.com. they put the issue in 1963 and the full page looks like a 1963, but it is 1968.

I've just added a lot of the missing Amarillo cards from 1954.

I learned that Pampero Firpo went by Ivan Pirpo today. Thanks.

For some reason, I have in my Pampero Firpo match history that Firpo fought Lou Thesz in Odessa on 11/19/1965. Thoughts on that?

I also have Jose Lothario beating Pampero Firpo (DQ) in Amarillo on 10/23/1965.

I'm missing some Odessa cards from that period. Odessa cards were on Tuesdays usually, but they may have moved to a Friday to be able to book Thesz.

October 23, 1965 was a Saturday, so that is either a TV match, or the match may have been in Hereford, not Amarillo. Do you have the whole card?

I have this Odessa card for November 19, 1965;

Odessa – Luke Brown & Jake Smith W Len Miller & Tokyo Tom, Dory Funk Jr., Dory Funk Sr. & Ricky Romero W Mike DiBiase, Jack Donovan & Don McClarity, Lou Thesz W Pampero Firpo.

That would seem to be at odds with the Albuquerque card also listed for that date;

Albuquerque – Jack Cain & Mike DiBiase W Dory Funk Jr. & Dory Funk Sr., Jose Lothario W Pampero Firpo, Jack Donovan W Rene Goulet, Ricky Romero W Tokyo Tom, 1,600.

The Albuquerque card is correct. I suspect the Odessa card should be Tuesday November 16. Thesz wrestled in Lubbock on the 17th, but not in Amarillo on the 18th. He would almost certainly have wrestled in Amarillo if he was staying to wrestle in Odessa on the Friday.

The entire Odessa newspaper archive is now available, so I now have all the missing Odessa cards. Over 100 missing cards. I'll get around the updating this thread one day. With the Odessa cards, and cards from Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Hobbs, Roswell and Hereford I probably have more than 500 cards that aren't in this thread.


If you check out wrestlingdata.com, I always keep that site updated with my newest Amarillo finds.

Tuesday, November 16, 1965 (Ector County Coliseum, Odessa, Texas)
Len Miller & Tokyo Tom vs. Luke Brown & Jake Smith … Dory Funk Jr. & Ricky Romero vs. Don McClarity & Jack Donovan … Iron Mike DiBiase vs. Dory Funk Sr. … (World Heavyweight Title) Lou Thesz* vs. Ivan Firpo

 The results for this show weren't in the newspaper, unfortunately.
