Admittedly, I hadn’t been to an Iowa Wrestling Meet in years until the Dec 21, 2013 Penn St. match.  Someone said “If you think Carver gets loud during a Basketball game, just wait”. I had my doubts, but when Tony Ramos pinned his opponent that night, the entire crowd erupted and flew from their seats in front of me, yelling and spinning in circles with their fists pumping in the air. It confirmed the suspicions I already had…..wrestling fans are nuts.

I also knew that wrestling fans simply don’t have the memorabilia & merchandise available to them as football & basketball fans do. My “Dan Gable” piece has become my top seller over all others. I continued to follow Tony’s senior season right up to his National Championship. If I remember correctly, he took the National Title on a Saturday night, and I started drawing this piece the following Monday.

 

Price: from $25.00
