This is a vintage, 1940s-1950s wrestling poster from the Paramount Theatre in Walla Walla Washington. The bill included Andra Andoree, Fred Mitchell, Joe Campbell, Eric Pederson, Alex Cenffer (210 lb Colored Boy of Cleveland) and Jack Lombardi.
Eric Pederson was born as Charles Roland Putnam, in August 17, 1928. He was also known in the ring as Eric Pedersen, Eric Peterson and Superman Apollo/Superman the Apollo. He debuted in Los Angeles in 1948. Previously, he had a successful body-building career, becoming Mr. California with only 18 years old in 1947. I believe Fred Mitchell may have some notoriety also.
The poster measures about 22"x 28" (just a bit over). The back was used to paste old beer labels too (please see 5th picture, 1st image) but this does not come through to the front at all, no glue marks or anything. Some edge wear on poster, a couple small tears along edge, and of course the 3 corners do have the bites taken out of them as you can see inI the 1st picture, but nothing goes into the text or photos or anything.
This is a really great old original poster with multiple photos!
It is a printed on old heavy cardboard material.
(Will be mailed flat)
