wow that Hulkamania suited 80s Hulk Hogan is just :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop: That blows the RF 80s Hogan pic I posted out of the water!

Plus fully suited Bossman, Bulldog, and JYD? Holy shit! All those kids must have been children of wrestlers or other workers from way back.

And Army suited Elvis! How rare is that!

Here's Hulkamania shirted Randy Orton as a child with 80s Hulk Hogan.

This counts because the picture was taken before Randy Orton was a valid combo.

I was quite impressed with the guy who got the Harley/Bass op - getting two heels during the strong kayfabe days couldn't have been easy. Granted, I don't know if the guy was somebody with an "in" to get that op, but since the photo looks to have been taken in a parking garage, he could very well have been hanging out waiting for wrestlers to leave, or it could have just been a random meeting too. Either way, you don't see many heel photo ops from that time period.

Here are some of my favorites from a good friend of mine who is still collecting today..includes many photos dating back to 1990 or even before. Remember, celebs were generally much easier to get back then.

Love those old photos heelorton, what a cute boy. Ha ha ha. Your friends are incredible as well.

Has this guy been posted yet? Keith Valcourt. His rivals any I've seen in the last 30 years. I'm simply too lazy to post his photo links here, perhaps Class can?

Music wise he may have the best ever. Film, TV and Sports, his collection was underwhelming after seeing his Sinatra. I was expecting vintage Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Michael Jordan, etc, but he had pretty pedestrian (by comparison to other old school combo hunters) names.

I'd pay BIG for that photo opp, probably over $1000

Would be a cool shot but not worth that much today, as he doesn't look like that anymore.

I'm having trouble configuring the photos to be able to post them in the thread so I will just post the links in hopes they don't go dead and/or a more computer-literate user can copy their favorites into the thread.

These are some of my favorites:


Alan Barcoff was big into the wrestling photo op scene in the 80s. Now he seems to have lots of bar scene women.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Photos-o ... tos_stream


Ron Newcomer with a younger Mariah Carey-Ron was a photographer, I mostly knew of his football hall of fame pics, now seeing lots of celebrities.

http://www.oocities.org/friendswithstar ... phs-3.html

Orson Welles-I think the Jim guy was a director. He also has Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston and a Mash script signed by nearly whole cast from last season. AM Live is a good site for lots of old school type autographs/photo ops

Couldn't find the edit button, so will post this one

This guy Brad is a fan, from reading his blog he has no connections, he's been collecting autographs since he was a kid in the 80s. Did some ttm mailing back then and would correspond with, and meet, many of the Our Gang actors.

Also check out findadeath.com but I'm not going to post link because it has major "pop ups" that, on my computer, seem to trigger the anti-virus. Best one, on the site, is a guy meeting Moe Howard at his home.
