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."

This one's been shown here but it's my only Gotch. Picked it up a few months ago on COMC when they had a big sale going.

Very nice, if you are looking for more cards from the 16 card Max Rigot series let me know. I have a good selection of them yet as I look to upgrade my set.
