OX BAKER

 

Ox Baker's Ring Worn Boots and Trunks

The Real Star Of "ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK"

Original ring worn - ring used pair of wrestling boots obtained directly from the feet of DOUG "OX" BAKER himself.  Circa 1970's, these boots are rare historic mementos of days past when OX was feared throughout the midwest and south by opponents and fans alike.  How many heads and midsections were these size 14's introduced to?  Lots of ring use on these beautiful boots, one black pair and one blue pair, with glorious white lettering and original laces.  No other wrestler put in the boot quite like OX!  Each boot has been signed on the soles by OX BAKER or on the inside by OX BAKER and they are also accompanied by an original letter of authenticity signed by OX BAKER himself.    

Sorry, both Pairs Are No Longer Available

Legend has it that in the old days of cash payments OX would often ask for his cash up front.  When Ox got dressed for the ring he would put his cash on the inside of his wrestling boot and then lace it up.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

An original ring worn - ring used pair of wrestling trunks and tights worn by the legendary OX BAKER during his heyday in the 1970's.  Worn by one of the most feared men ever to step into the squared circle, these outstanding black wrestling trunks show excellent ring use and feature the dreaded OX lettering in red on both the front and the back.  Also included are the matching red and black tights which accompanied these trunks.  This great ring worn outfit was obtained directly from Doug "OX" Baker and is supported by an original letter of authenticity signed by OX BAKER himself.    Sorry, No Longer Available

 

 

 

 

OX BAKER'S

BEAUTIFUL BOBBY HARMON

RING WORN ROBE

 

 

An outstanding example of ring worn attire from the 1960's/70's wrestler who may have been the first to use entrance music.  This full length, satin robe was obtained from Bob Harmon a.k.a. "Beautiful Bobby".  It was used very early in his career and looks remarkably like the robes belonging to the legendary Gorgeous George i.e. "The Human Orchid".  This was indeed a very costly robe to construct.  It is made of high quality, very heavy, double lined satin.  It bears a large stitched and decorated orchid on the back.  It is accompanied with a signed COA and a photo of the signing from Bob Harmon.  On February 19, 2005, Beautiful Bobby Harmon was inducted into the Midwest Championship Wrestling Hall of Fame.   Sorry, No Longer Available.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEAUTIFUL BOBBY HARMON

WWWF RING WORN ROBE

If you remember the WWWF of the early 1970's, you could never forget one of the most flamboyant wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle at Madison Square Garden and the surrounding regional arenas.  Beautiful Bobby danced, pranced and tippy-toed onto the scene in dashing, living color.  Together with his notorious manager and buddy, The Grand Wizard, BB daintily vanquished his opponents with the "Bobby Hold".  Like me, you probably longed for the day when WWWF Champion, Pedro Morales would one day wipe the smug and self-righteous grin from the face of the Beautiful one. 

Those old-school days are long gone, but the memories and the memorabilia live on!

On offer is an extremely rare Beautiful Bobby full length wrestling robe.  An incredibly gorgeous piece of ring worn wrestling memorabilia.  This "Santa Claus" style full length robe is brilliant red with soft fluffy white collar and trim.  It sports the infamous and unmistakable "BB" on the back and on the two sleeves.  If you recall, Beautiful Bobby only wore his few full length robes into the larger venues such as Madison Square Garden, Baltimore Civic Center and Boston Garden.    It is accompanied with a signed COA and a photo of the signing from the beautiful one himself, Bob Harmon.      

No Longer Available!

 

 

 

BEAUTIFUL BOBBY HARMON

WWWF RING WORN KILT

Bobby was famous for his "disrobing act" prior to his match with these wrap around kilts with full length side zipper.  He and the Grand Wizard would work the fans into a taunting frenzy as he carefully removed these kilts (worn over his "BB" trunks).  These were most likely worn around St Patrick's Day!

Cool piece of BB memories, fantastic condition, beautiful green sequined kilts with white "BB".  If you remember Beautiful Bobby in the WWWF in '71 / '72, then you know his ring attire.

BEAUTIFUL BOBBY HARMON WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME.  LATER IMITATED, BUT NEVER DUPLICATED.

No Longer Available!

 

 

BEAUTIFUL BOBBY HARMON

WWWF RING WORN JACKET

A Beautiful Bobby Ring Worn & Used Gold Sequined Jacket with the trademark "BB" in black across the back of the jacket.  Bobby was always color coordinated!  Again, if you remember Bobby, you remember these outfits!   ANYONE REMEMBER "THE BOBBY LOCK!!"

It is accompanied with a signed letter of authenticity from Beautiful Bobby Harmon and an in ring action photo showing Beautiful Bobby wearing the jacket. Cool Piece!

This beautiful BB Ring jacket from 1971 is for sale at $499.

CHIEF JAY STRONGBOW

RING WORN WRESTLING BOOTS & BELLS - No Longer Available

RING WORN TRADITIONAL TRIBAL WARBONNET - No Longer Available

One of the greatest Indian wrestlers of all time, Chief Jay Strongbow (Joe Scarpa) would electrify the packed house of Madison Square Garden, every month with his war dance.  22,000 frenzied fans would in turn pound the "drums" of the underside of the hollow metal seats of The Garden as the Chief tomahawk chopped such heels as Crazy Luke Graham, Tora Tanaka, King Curtis,  Fred Blassie, Stan Stasiak, Superstar Billy Graham, Spyros Arion and many others.  Master of the Sleeperhold, Strongbow was the consumate babyface, a great worker in his prime, he was consistently able to control the fans with his ability to emotionally sell his moves and those of his opponents.

On offer is a pair of Chief Jay Strongbow ring worn wrestling boots.  One of these boots has also been signed on the undersole by Jay Strongbow himself in bold silver sharpie.  They are also accompanied with a set of boot bells, one of which has also been signed Jay Strongbow.  The boots and bells are in excellent condition. 

Also being offered is Chief Jay Strongbow's ring worn traditional tribal war bonnet.  It is signed on the inside leather brim by Jay Strongbow.

THE SPOILER - DON JARDINE

Standing 6' 4" and weighing 250 lbs, "The Master of the Iron Claw", Jardine was best known for his masked gimmick as "The Spoiler".  Don Jardine began wrestling in the mid-1950s, making his wrestling debut in 1955 at the age of 15. He made his Maple Leaf Gardens debut in 1959 as "Babyface" Don Jardine, a protege of Whipper Billy Watson and wrestled preliminarily in Toronto (where he also wrestled as Sonny Cooper) until 1961 and returned briefly in 1964. In 1964, Jardine wrestled NWA World Heavyweight Champion Lou Thesz on TV in St. Louis, but did not win the title.

LADY WRESTLER

KATHY STARR

HER RING WORN TIGHTS!

PLUS HER

WOMENS UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP BELT! 

Extremely rare, these ring worn wrestling tights came directly from a friend of Kathy Starr when she lived in Missouri.  Accompanying the tights is the womens united states championship belt Kathy would wear into the ring in the mid 1960's under the promotion of (I believe) Bobby Bruns.  She also defended this UNITED STATES WOMENS TITLE BELT when in Hawaii in 1966/1967.  Additionally, found with the belt and the tights were HER U.S. PASSPORT and numerous letters to kathy from friends.

Kathy started her wrestling career in the late 1950's and continued through the mid 1960's.  She wrestled wherever she was booked. She found herself in such cities as Sarasota and Tampa Florida and then Rochester, Minn. in January, 1958 and then in such cities as St. Joseph Missouri in July 1958, and St Joseph, Kansas City, Missouri in and St. Paul, Minn in October/November, 1958. By all accounts, she appears to have been based in the Mid-West.

On April 13, 1963, at the Armory, St Paul, Minn., Kay Noble defeated Kathy Starr for the Womens World Title vacated by June Byers.

THIS ENTIRE KATHY STARR COLLECTION (RING WORN TIGHTS, CHAMPIONSHIP BELT, CORRESPONDENCE AND HER U.S. PASSPORT) IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE.  OFFERS ACCEPTED.
