Snip, Sniff, Hud & Rummy @ '53 NCAAs
Climb into the Time Machine

was like 55 years ago...
... when wrestlers named Snip,
Sniff, Hud and Rummy vied for
national collegiate wrestling titles*...
Check out these sources for the 1953 NCAAs at Penn State:
> NEW photo album of the '53 NCAA finalists, along with some team pics, at VintageAmateurWrestlingPhotoAnnex 3...
(You'll also find actual-size pages of the program sold to fans in the stands)
> NEW article at RevWrestling about the '53 NCAAs, the year that host Penn State won the team title (the last Eastern college to do so!)
