Autographed promo

This autographed wrestling publicity photo of Bill Melby fetched a handsome price in a recent on-line auction.  He has quite a following in the 50's nostalgia wrestling cyber world, and if you go on YouTube and put his name in the search box, you can see him in action on TV footage with some really iconic figures.  After retiring from wrestling in the mid-60s, he returned to the Salt Lake area and used his savings to start a construction company that specialized in apartment buildings.  My genealogy resources show no death entry for Mr. Melby, so he may still be living at age 93.
