Before he was a grappler Jerry Lawler was a painter. A sign painter, that is, working for wrestling legend Jackie Fargo and rockabilly artist Eddie Bond. But Lawler was also a serious art student, studying at Memphis State University on scholarship. As we all know, Lawler made his career as a performance artist with the squared circle as his canvas. In recent years, however, the King has returned to his roots, by creating some swell comic book art, and these trading cards for Topps.

They should have also requested a self portrait.
