Why the WCFL Oklahoma State Championship, of course!

Wild guess- looking at the poster, he's not the Southern Champion . . .not the World Champion . . Florida title? The only thing that's confusing is the crown on the title belt.

I have no idea... assuming it's a singles title, Jack held the NWA, Mid-Atlantic, Missouri, Florida Heavy, Florida Southern, Florida TV, and AWA Southern title.

We know it's not the NWA or Missouri belt, and I think I've seen all versions of the Mid-Atlantic title, so it leaves the other four... anyone have any ideas?

In the Brisco slide show on his site, there's also a pic with his brother Jerry holding the tag belts. They're identified as the Florida tag belts, but I wanted to clarify since Jack and Jerry held the Florida N. American tag belts, the Florida US tag belts, and the Florida version of the World Tag belts... anyone know which of these belts they are for sure and the approx. date?

The belt Jack is wearing is the Eastern States belt, Carolina territory. Jerry Brisco also held it along with Larry Hamilton and Dan Miller. It was renamed the Mid Atlantic Title in 1974.

Libnan -

are you sure that's the Eastern title...? Check this out... this is a picture of Danny Miller holding what we've surmised is the Eastern title... this pic here would've been in Sept. 1971.... Jack held the Eastern title in late 71... and by 1975, the Eastern title, now Mid-Atlantic title, looked like this:

Mr. Brisco, can you help clear this up at all?

The X looks like the Confederate flag. And it looks like I can make out the border of Georgia or maybe Alabama.

Vince, I saw a picture before of Jerry Brisco wearing that belt, which it said was the Eastern States belt. Since you brought up your new information, it got me thinking again.
I flicked through " Official wrestling Yearbook" by sports buff illustrated from 1973 and on page 154 there is a picture of Tim Woods wearing the same belt, NWA Southern Belt from Florida. I can scan you the picture if you do not have it.

Um.....the flag of the Confederate States of America had no "X" in it. Perhaps you meant the oft-misidentified Battle Flag used by some, but not all, Southern units in The War of Northern Aggression?

The War of Northern Aggression?

Was that before or after the Civil War?
