Last year my folks went to Mexico for a couple of weeks. They bought me a small white wrestling mask. It was kinda cool and on the shelf it went. This year, they went again, asking me what they should bring me back. I said another 'better' wrestling mask. They showed me the mask and I was surprised. This is from Mexico so how much is it worth or symbolic, no idea. But kinda cool. You can see a real difference the masks quality.

After the book signing, I was able to get back in touch with an old highschool friend of mine who happens to work for Bret. I asked her if she could get this signed for me and she said she would. I ended up getting my belt back, signed 8x10, and some cool photos with Bret holding my belt.
This one took 20 year to complete but is my crown jewel of my collection. It is a Body Press from Yorkton, Saskatchewan from 1988. It was signed by Owen Hart at the matches then. 20 years later, during Bret Hart's book tour, I showed it to him and he spent a few minutes looking at it, remembering his family, friends that gave so much. He was surprised I still had it 20 years later, I asked him to sign it which he did. I have been offered $600 for this and turned it down. Have a look at the the full sheet on the left side, Benoit, Pillman and Hart.... :(
