Glad eveyone is enjoying these. They had been buried in the attic for several years. Here's the last batch for now, I'll scan more in as I have time during the week. Most of these again are from White Plains, but one or two might be from Sunnyside Garden.

Flying Fred Curry & Chief Jay Strongbow (Sonny King is obscured); El Olympico with his mask turned around on him (I think he was going against Manuel Soto); Francisco Flores; Mr. Fugi; Gashouse Doug Gilbert; Waldo Von Erich.

did you take these pics yourself or are they from a yearbook or something similar?  it is also pretty neat to see austin idol as mike mccord.   he was alot bulkier in his early days before he trimmed down later in his career.

Most of these I took myself at the matches, but there are a few that I purchased.

Does anybody have an estimate of when Strongbow stopped teaming with King? The photos are wonderful, but I think I am jamming some years together in my mind.

Those pics with King are from 1972, possibly early 1973. I think he was gone by March or April '73.

He and Strongbow were tag team champs during the summer of '72 I believe.

Right, and thre Valiants are in the on epic so that would be around 1974-1975.  Great era to have pics from!

He later loaned that hair to John Kerry for the campaign.

I am glad you put that pic of McGraw on there.  He did lose a considerable amount of weight.  After he left the WWF, I think he showed up in Florida some years later a lot thinner.  Does anybody know, was he sick or did he just decide to shed the pounds on his own?

 

Great stuff.
