Those are neat results. I saw quite a bit of Bob Boyer as Bobby Bold Eagle in Bruiser's Indianapolis based WWA. Even got his autograph one night in Terre Haute.

Thanks clawmaster. I got to see him as himself on Crockett tv shows a few times in the early sixties. He came back as Bobby Bold Eagle during the latter part of 1973 into early 1974.

These two cards in High Point were done to see how the crowd response would be there compared to the Lexington YMCA. They went back to Lexington after the Feb. 25 show even though a spokesman said Jim Crockett was pleased with the turnout.

It was not until after the High Point tv show debuted in 1964 that the attendance for the Piedmont Triad area saw a major increase on a consistent basis.
