Championship Bowling – Steve Nagy vs Andy Varipapa 3 Game Set (1956)

Before the creation of the PBA and the popular Pro Bowlers Tour show, bowling was televised weekly on Championship Bowling. The show ran from 1954-1960 and featured two current stars facing off in a 3-game match.

 

Many of the shows can be found on YouTube and this one features Andy Varipapa and Steve Nagy, circa 1956. An interesting historical fact comes out in the opening introductions. During the practice session Andy rolled the 78th and final 300 game of his career;  and we know it was a true 300 because Steve Nagy was keeping score!
