Here's a clipping from a card from May 16th 1970.

Who was Zipper Secuno(a)?

Mike (Baron) Scicluna. Should have been 'Ripper', not 'Zipper', but, you know... Texas. Couldn't spell 'Soto', either.

So long from the Sunshine State!

I guess that most posters would know that Lord (Charles) Montague was Jacob Grobbe aka Hans "The Great" Mortier.

Grobbe also wrestled as Dutch Howlett, Great Zorra, Tarzan Zorra, Great Zorro, Tarzan Zorro, Mighty Zorro, Zorro, Dr X and Mr X, among other names.

He was a globe trotter who wrestled from 1946 to the 1970s in locations including the USA, Canada, Australia (in 1955, 1956 and 1957), New Zealand, Japan, Great Britain, South Korea, Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Grobbe was born in the Netherlands in 1924 and passed away in 2010.

It's a minor thing, but that's not Bonham, Tx. That's actually Howe or Sherman, Tx. Bonham is east of Sherman about 35 miles. 6 miles south of Sherman on 75 is actually a little town called Howe. Not that it matters, though.

That's the first time I've ever seen a card that had to describe who Wahoo was. He was "colorful" though.
