Signed Dan Gable action figure

As a coach and wrestler, Dan Gable was a rare talent... just like this alternate edition of a Dan Gable action figure. Only 100 of this version of the Gable action figures were created ... and this one -- No. 72 out of 100 -- -is the only one numbered in gold.

Signed GQ featuring Dan Gable

Surprised to learn Dan Gable was once featured inside GQ? So was he; he didn't remember being featured in the men's fashion magazine. Gable was highlighted in the June 1984 issue of "Gentleman's Quarterly" with his college wrestling coach, Harold Nichols, of Iowa State.

The original Gable Munich Helles lager print template

When Single Speed Brewery of Waterloo, Iowa crafted the new Gable Munich Helles Lager, it had two rules: it had to be good ... and it had to be gold. This is the original (and one and only) print template when Single Speed Brewery created the can for the lager. We've also thrown in the first empty can pulled off the line for the Gable Museum. Cheers!
