belt is kinda steep, but autograph photos are very reasonable. maybe carson's wrestling world in allentown pa. will have him back again soon.

If you're interested in the belt, it's possible that Bruno negotiated a deal with the makers that would see part of his compensation being that he recieve a certain number to sell on his own. I doubt that's the case here, but if it is, he may sell them a bit cheaper, AND you could get a personalized autograph & probably a picture.

I'm considering that Highspots has such a small inventory of them. That either indicates exclusivity or low expectations insofar as sales.

Clearly Bruno was using synthol in the tops of his ears.

One funny fact that you may/probably already know is that there were legit tough guys back in the day who "earned" their cauliflower ears in actual fights.
But, there were also other guys who wanted to LOOK tough even though they weren't. So, they would employ little tricks like soaking their ear lobes with a hot towel to soften the cartilage and then pinch & twist the lobes with pliers, creating the appearance of cauliflower ears.

The belt in the last photo seems to have something extra on it.

I think I would rather get them hardway!

It does. The side buckles are also slightly different.
But, it's one of the most famous shots of Bruno.

I personally would love to have an authentic belt to put in my media room but just not willing to pay $3-$500 for one.

I've seen a couple up close. They're really not that great.
