[No publication information: 2004]. Illustrated. First Edition. Signed presentation from the subject, the author, and the co-author to Cecilia Daniello on the front endpaper: “C. W. Smith, Enjoy”/”Cecilia Danielo, Damian Mann”/ and “Best Wishes always, From Wrestling Champion Rico Valentino.” Enemies have called Valentino a con-man, a tax evader and an outright liar. He’s been shot at, he’s been grilled in court, and some have claimed he’s responsible for a few dead bodies that have never been found. What is known for sure is that Rico was a pro-wrestler seen on TV as “Beatnick Rick” and “Rico Renaldo Valentino.” He played bit parts in “B” movies and was a wrestling promoter. He began a new career as an undercover agent for the FBI, with a litany of other interesting tales. A great, and uncommon signed copy! Small 8vo., pictorial wraps; 155 pages. Item #57564
Very Good (covers very nice; contents clean & tight).
