MORE OF THOSE GREAT COLOR PHOTOS


All of the wrestling magazines of the past, going back as far as fifty years, were great. But one thing missing (I suppose for cost purposes) were photos of our favorite grapplin' stars in full color. And I mean true color. Not the 'air-brushed' photos in which the artists who colored them must have been on some strange chemicals when they worked.

So, on the rare occassion, when a reader ran across a nice full-color picture of his favorite wrestler, it was special.

Here are a few that caught my eye...

GEORGE 'CATALINA' DRAKE

ANDRE THE GIANT versus ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER

THE SPOILER / THE SUPER DESTROYER
(DON JARDINE)

JOHNNY WEAVER versus J.J. DILLON

KILLER KARL KOX

MR. X 1 & 2
(GORDON NELSON & GEOFF PORTZ)

RIC FLAIR versus ANDRE THE GIANT
