NOT RETREAD HISTORY

MOSE BURRIS

CHOCTAW STICKBALL CHAMPION

By C L. Packer

Folks, I must confess that I have been negligent over these years. It was not prejudice or bigotry but, truth was, ignorance. See, I failed in my reporting by-passing Indian history. Well, in my declining years, I am going to try to make up for it. Here is the story entitled

MOSE BURRIS

CHOCKTAW STICKBALL CHAMPION

but really, the author here has reported a story of an Indian hero. His name was Mose Burris and I have included his story and indexed it for genealogical purposes below. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY COLLECTION AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES. TOM RUSSELL COLLECTION

For more Information Please Visit:

The Tom Russell Collection

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

OLD MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada. $5.00 Priority Mail. $12.30 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
