Give the gift of pro wrestling

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

By the time pro wrestling action figures were first introduced to me (summer of 1985) I was already a pre-teen and probably too old to be playing with toys. However, I was in love with the WWF LJN figures and before the summer had ended I'd collected all five Superstars in the first set, Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Snuka, the Iron Sheik, Andre the Giant and Big John Studd. Of course, Christmas morning there were new Superstars were under the tree that year. 

That was the pattern for the next two or three Christmases. I loved those Superstars and still have them today. Looking back I'm grateful my family was able to provide these toys for me and my undying love for pro wrestling. However, I know the reality is not all kids will wake up Christmas morning to presents. That notion bothers me. And after listening to the Major Brothers Wrestling Figure Podcast last year and hearing about their figure drive, I got inspired. 

The fans of Stride Pro Wrestling and My 1-2-3 Cents donated more than 50 toys in 2018. I've continued the tradition this year and aim still aiming for 250 figures or wrestling-related toys. My buddy Chad Smart has donated an autographed 4 Horsemen poster to raffle off to those who donate. But time is running out. Sunday, Dec. 15 is the deadline to donate and we're way off from the goal of 250. If you don't live in southern Illinois, you can Paypal me ( and I'm going to pick up figures at Five Below Sunday night. Each $5 donation will earn you a chance in the raffle. 

Thank you all and Merry Christmas.
