All of these events and more are recorded in the rare volume reproduced here: the actual booking calendar used by Jack Adkisson (Fritz Von Erich) in his office at the Sportatorium in 1977. Although it isn't quite complete (the pages for September are unfortunately missing), it's still a fascinating look at a highly interesting period in Texas wrestling. Penciled in by Bronko Lubich are the city ("CC", on Thursdays, stands for Corpus Christi) and matches for each evening's card (or, for spot shows, the wrestlers scheduled to appear). The gate for each show is recorded in red ink, most likely by Fritz's secretary Kathy White.
Also sprinkled throughout are reminders of the availability -- or unavailability -- of various wrestlers on certain dates, as well as birthdays and other special family occasions. You can click each image below to display a larger and more readable copy.
Our sincere thanks to Missy Hyatt for providing the scans of this unique piece of mat history!
