This Canadian little person was a professional wrestler, a crowd pleaser with shaved head and full beard, a regular on the wrestling circuit of the 1940s and '50s who also performed under the name "Little John." Item #45714
PS, 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Original ringside black-and-white glossy depicting a grimacing Ivan at left center pinning down an opponent (possibly Little Beaver) as an umpire in the background observes. In the large blank area in the foreground, he signs "Ivan / the / Terrible" large and bold in blue ballpoint. Very scarce and an original, quite possibly unique, print of an apparently unpublished image.
