Is anyone interested in seeing old newsclippings (box ads & articles)? I have thousands of them, and was posting them at KM for a while, but that site is not as active as it once was. I can post some here if anyone wants to see them.

For those unaware, in the early-mid 1900's the population of New Bedford, MA was largely Portugese immigrants, which explains why the ads were aimed at that population.

Yeah, those clips were from researching "Diário de Notícias", the Portuguese language newspaper from that area.

In the January 4th, 1965 Albuquerque, NM clipping, could Jose Torko be Joe Turco under a similar name?

I would say yes. I have "Joe Turko" on numerous cards in Albuquerque, El Paso and other southwest cities during 1963 - 1964.

Thanks a million.

Do you know what papers the Houston adds came from?  I hit both of their main newspapers and got all they had. These are totally different box adds.

What about the Altoona adds.  I also searched those papers and never seen those clippings.  You seen what I did have from their papers.

So what do I owe you?  what are you looking for?

Those Houston clippings are out of "The Daily Court Review" (Houston TX). The others are from the "Altoona Mirror".

Ron, you don't owe me anything. If I come up with anything else, I'll send them your way.

i didnt research the daily court review.  Just the two biggest papers.

I did do the Altoona mirror tho.   Must have been one of them monatonous days that had me all but asleep that i missed those.  Or perhaps a sunday paper.  The library I was in only had the weekdays for Altoona.

Love the clippings, they are great. Anything from upstate NY, specifically Albany area in the '70s would be very cool.

Cool to see Verne teamed with and vs Whipper Watson, Gagne never got up here much (Ontario) till the late 70's, never as champ in Toronto anyways

Here are a few World Title clips from the Oshawa stuff

1948 Longson (would lose to Thesz 5 days later in Indy)





1956 Whipper



1960 O'Connor


1967 Kiniski

Great clips, as usual. Thanks for sharing.

I'm a little stumped though by the one above. Geeto & DeFazio as Int'l tag champs support it being April 72.  But April 24th was Monday that year, not Friday. Obviously the box ad is incorrect.

Can anybody confirm the correct day and/or date for this card?

Good catch on that incorrect date. The correct date for the card was April 21.

Carlton, thanks for the Toronto Bruno stuff. A few observations.

I have Sammartino in Montreal on September 13, 1962 teaming with Enrique Torres going to a NC vs. John & Chris Tolos.

On the September 27, 1962 card, Bruno & Watson won the belts. 

November 1, 1962 was a TV taping day with Bruno beating Kangaroo Kennedy earlier.

The U.S. Title Match with Valentine on November 15 went to a DCOR in 23:21

On the November 22, 1962 card, Bruno beat JV to win the strap

Bruno & Kiniski lost the November 29 tag match to Brower & Valentine

December 6, 1962 saw Bruno & Watson retain the tag straps and finally on the December 27 card, Bruno beats Sakuro

yeah my mistake on a typo that first one is Sept 20

62/09/20 Att: 5,000
Lou Thesz DCNC Argentina Rocca 19:44
Bruno Sammartino W Bob Stanlee 4:14
Sweet Daddy Siki W Ray Gordon 21:04
Taro Sakuro W Timothy Geohagen 16:04
Enrique Torres W Angelo Savoldi 7:33
Stan Stasiak D Tony Marino 20:00
(Subs for Jim Hady)

the rest you have is correct on the 11/22 Bruno/Valentine -Brower comes out and tells referee that Valentine’s foot was on the ropes; ref says final decision will be up to the NWA -on the next card 12/06 Bobby Bruns comes out and affirms Bruno is the new US champ

Bruno also loses the belt on Dec 14 back to Valentine in 21.22 but I couldn't find a clip, I will check the Globe on my next visit

I believe I posted all of 1962 a ways back in this forum

Nice clippings. Are you sure about the year of the first Melbourne clipping? Considering the talent and titles involved, it seems more likely to have been 1977.

Thanks, El Olympico for the Omaha clippings.  I was there for the ones from Nov 1970 on.

The two that have THE CLAW listed do not have the correct picture of him in either clip!  The first one (Feb 6th) looks like "The Avenger" with Art Neilsen under the mask.  The other one (July 10th) is not anyone that I recognize.  Maybe one of the other guys here can identify whose picture that is.

I know they were still active in April/May of 1973.  I think they lost their TV time sometime after that and relied on the main AWA office to promote shows there in the mid 70's.

I think that "The Claw" was Tom Andrews. He later teamed with Jim Starr as a version of the (masked) Interns.

Bumping this up - I haven't been able to post much over the past few months, but if there is still interest in seeing clippings, I can start adding some to this thread. I've found a lot of interesting stuff while researching these cards, so I have plenty to share.

Thanks so much for sending along these clippings- very interesting.

Maybe it's me, but I see alot of the start times for these shows is 8:30- to me that seems kinda late.

Scott Teal did an interview with wrestler Chuck Molnar about this incident in one of his Whatever Happened To? magazines. Molnar co-owned the bear with Dr. Jerry and they toured the country with the bear and Molnar said they made pretty good money. They would take turns wrestling the bear and the other one would wrestle on the card against an opponent from the area they were visiting.

I'll have to see if I still have that issue around. Molnar really went into detail about how the bear interacted with Dr. Graham and him.

I'm bad with links so go to Slam Sports and find Chuck Molnar Dead at 72 and it tells some more about this incident. Not as thorough as Teal's magazine but a pretty good read.
