Some great pics. I suspect there are a lot of people who used to take a camera to the shows and have some pics like that socked away.

Wow!

Scicluna with the count cape, doing the vampire schtick, and he he does look halfway menacing. 

And, big Lou cyr with the fur hat. 

Thanks, El.

These are great !!!

WOW!!!  Very rare snaps.  Pedro with the United States Title.  He was the only one to wear a belt in the WWWF of all the guys billed as United States Champion in the WWWF.

Two shots of Pedro with the WWWF title belt that was used as an interim belt between the one that Bruno wore and the first of the "Mulkovitch" belts.  And finally, Pedro with Bruno's belt in hand-the only time (I think) that he ever had possession of the strap that Bruno now has in his trophy case.

Thank you, El O!!  Great stuff!

Scicluna's cape/robe must have been a bitch to pack.

Look at the last pic of Pedro and Bruno in street clothes. You can FEEL the crowd heat coming off of that one. Plus the great color pics of the old 4 strand MSG ring. One month after Pedro beat Koloff, Frazier beat Ali in that exact same ring.

My jaw is dropping at these pictures.  Thank you very much for sharing them.

Indulge me a stupid question please - in the the Morales series, second picture down, is that Gorilla Monsoon adjusting his cuffs in the background?

Yup.
My question is regarding Wong Lee's last post about the MSG ring. Was the pic with Pedro and Bruno taken at MSG? I love that picture, as was said you can see the heat in the crowd and it looks like you could cut the electricity with a knife that night. What was the story behind that picture El Olympico? Did Bruno make the save after a Pedro beat down by the heels? If that picture wasn't taken at MSG where then was it. Like I said, definitely a hot crowd that night.
