Gable Museum Now Selling Prints of Gotch/Hack Painting
This weekend I got my copy of the Matside newsletter from the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute & Museum in Waterloo, Iowa...
... and there's an article announcing the availability of 100 signed prints of a new oil painting commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first title match between world champion George "the Russian Lion" Hackenschmidt and Iowa farmboy Frank Gotch which took place in Chicago on April 3, 1908.
There's no photo of the painting/print itself, but it says it shows the two wrestlers locked in combat in the middle of the ring.... with an inset image of the two shaking hands before the match.
To order the autographed print:
> Mail $75 + $10 shipping and handling to: Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute & Museum, 303 Jefferson Street, Waterloo, Iowa 50701
> Call 319-233-0745
