Default Boyd Pierce, You Say.

I have exactly 100 different of these super cool wrestlers, but I had never heard of a name for them. So, who/what was Boyd Pierce? Photographer? Promoter? Thanks for posting those, sthoemke. I see a lot on your post that I haven't seen before. Any idea or wild guess how many there are total?

If anybody has a Dick the Bruiser available, I am definitely interested.

Boyd Pierce sold the photos by mail order.

I suspect there are well over a thousand different photos, perhaps much more.

He was also an announcer/commentator for Mid-South wrestling.

Default Cowboy Bob Ellis Fan Club

Fan clubs were really big in the 50's & 60's. This young lady made Cowboy Bob's card into a postcard. I wonder how many of these Alice typed out manually? She was very skillful and creative.

If someone wants to see them, I'll keep posting. It gives me a good excuse to look at them, too.

I have seen these a few times in the past. What is a fair wholesale price on the common ones?

Thanks,

I purchased most of this lot a few years ago because I liked the Dusty Rhodes examples. Three in the second row to the left are signed.


Are these from the same person?

Yeah, it's a great one, but not untouchable. I can sell or trade. PM me if you want to kick it around.

Very cool, Supplex55! I had never heard of Mr. Pierce until long after I started collecting his cards.

I WOULD LOVE TO BUY OR TRADE FOR MORE OF THESE CARDS. I have a complete set of 1954-55 Parkhurst Wrestling cards and a near set (115/121) 1955-56 Parkhurst Wrestlers available to trade.

I had one signed by Wahoo, but ended up letting a huge fan get it. Still have the signed Fritz one however.
