Frank & The Kangaroos 1967

  

     As a follow up to Jack & The Kangaroos 1967 we have another Roger Baker classic, this time with Frank Tunney and the Kangaroos Al Costello & Ray St Clair.  

Taken in Detroit a couple of years prior to the Sheik streak in Toronto, Frank (and nephew Jack with him) take in a Detroit show. This version of the Kangaroos also appeared in Toronto. The original team of Costello and Roy Heffernan appeared here back in 1957-58 and had even been special referees for a World title bout (Hutton vs Whipper in '58)- both of them. 

This version didn't last long, Costello (the nicest guy in wrestling as per Roger) would soon team with Don Kent, later Bulldog Don Kent around here. Frank and Jack perhaps scouting out the hot-at-the-time Detroit territory in a prelude to the teaming with Sheik.
