Sorry for taking your spot as oldest member. lol As I mentioned, I wound up here by accident and I’ll just stay. If I start reminiscing almost no one will know what I’m talking about so unless I’m asked about wrestling back in the '50s and '60s I’ll remain silent.
Being an old fart (or “older” fart), you might want to check out KAYFABE MEMORIES. There is a nice mix between fossils like me, dinosaurs like you, and younger fans who never had the opportunity to experience true kayfabe during the Golden Age of Wrestling, 1950-1965 or later before the obliteration of the territories. Seriously, there are some very astute fans, former wrestlers, and wrestling historians on that message board.
I uploaded a photo of a large format cardboard poster in my collection that advertised the first wrestling show that I ever attended at age 11 going on 12 years old. It was on May 25, 1962. I hope it comes out in my post. If not, I would be grateful for any tips on posting photos. The list membership may (or may not) be interested in seeing my extensive collection of wrestling memorabilia. The stuff is all vintage pre-1965 for the most part, so I don’t know if there would be any interest.
