REVISED & EXPANDED 2nd EDITION
In October of 2008, Dick Bourne and Dave Millican had the rare opportunity to inspect and photograph the genuine NWA world heavyweight championship belt worn and defended in the 1970s and 1980s by Ric Flair, Terry Funk, Harley Race, and others. Not long afterwards, Bourne decided to put together a book about the history and construction of the NWA belt, a chance to share with others the opportunity they had been fortunate enough to have. The result was Ten Pounds of Gold".
The book features detailed photographs of every aspect of the belt, a look at its history, and a glimpse of the eight champions who proudly wore and defended it. Included are insights and images that have never been published until now, including some photographs Harley Race provided from his personal collection. The book also features a special foreword by Ric Flair.
Drawing from their their interest, experience, and research, Bourne and Millican proudly present the NWA belt as youve never seen it before!
