Nice. I think that one was part of some Gagne promotional giveaway relatively recently, either something to do with a signing or with the Gagne Training school that existed briefly. Either way, I've seen it before somewhere.

It's a beauty, though. If I had somewhere to put it, I might bid on it.

EDIT: I see the Mitsubishi tag on the pic so it was a giveaway during a dealership signing. Also noticed that Vachon is only listed as Champ once that I could see, which isn't correct from what I remember.

I've got one of those.  I've had mine close to 10 years.  I don't remember where I got it from.  I'm sure it's been re-printed a few times.  No idea when it first debuted

Greg Gagne worked at that Mitsubishi dealer some time back.

I went up to Milwaukee for an autograph signing some years ago and Greg was selling these for $10 a pop at the event.

There's a really good one with Mike Rapada, Gary Steele, Brent Albright and Kahagas all featured prominently.

Seems to start with Gene Kiniski.  Not willing to acknowledge its start as a made-up title for Gagne?
