Sale Price $180.00

Photograph signed: "'Jesus/Bless/you/Capt Lou Albano". Color, 8x10. Lou Albano (1933-2009) paired with Tony Altimore to form the wrestling tag team, The Sicilians, which won the Midwest Tag Team title (1961) and US Tag Team championship (1967). Showmen like most successful wrestlers, they were purportedly warned by real crime bosses to tone down their stereotypical Italian mobster hi-jinks. Albano had even greater success later as a manager, leading Ivan "the Russian Bear" Koloff to the WWWF Heavyweight Championship. Managing colorful tag teams like the Wild Somoans and the British Bulldogs, Albano was at first hated and eventually beloved by fans. On programs like Wrestlemania, he helped spark the current enthusiasm for TV wrestling. He also played Mario in the TV series The Supermario Brothers (1989-1991). Fine condition.
