A question for WrestlingCardKing ...

I see you have the #1 Frank Gotch set on PSA. Why is he listed under Non-Sports? And why are sooo many of his postcards not considered part of his Master Set?

I'm sure you've dealt with PSA on these issues and I'm wondering what their rationale is.

My best guess is that many postcards do not have information on the company that produced them so there is information lacking on how to label them....I totally understand that.

As for non-sports I think that is pretty silly and at some point you can move over wrestling when it went to "entertainment" but in reality it would just be simpler if they included them in sports. I am going to try and get some different Gotch postcards graded by PSA that have not been graded to date because it should have enough information to do so.....wish me luck.

Yeah. Anybody that thinks what Gotch and Hack were doing at that time was anything like WWF is clueless.

P.S. Good luck getting your PCs graded!

Absolutely. My Dad and I have been there 27 straight years now. It's become our father / son yearly event.

I grew up in PA so am in heaven these days with Penn State doing so well!

Not much info on Gotch's son, but found this interesting tidbit:

"Sandow was able to get photos of Lewis posing with 12 year old Frank Gotch Jr in newspapers all over the nation on February 20. The Strangler claimed that Gotch senior had taught him many things early in his career and he was going to pass the knowledge on to Junior. Lewis promised to take Junior "in tow" and make a wrestling champion out of him, just like his Dad. It was brilliant PR by Sandow but, 20 years later, Junior was working as a financial analyst in Houston. I also found it funny that the report called Lewis the ex-champion."

I found that i have a healthy stack of Frank Gotch postcards if anyone is interested in them. My duplicates are more out of hand than I thought! I have been actively collecting these over the last 15 plus years and always willing to add more that I do not have.
