It was an AMAZING accomplishment, especially given the era in which this took place!

I love watching historic films/videos, and this is a terrific find.

Lubanski was using a 2-finger grip (thumb and middle finger). That grip used to be fairly common back in the days of shellac finishes and gradually fell out of favor after lacquer was introduced. Lubanski may have been the last great bowler to use it.

I started bowling just a year after this accomplishment.  I also love to watch old shows.  Even those of us who played the game in that era tend to forget what it was really like or how we threw the ball to some extent.

Wow, what an amazing thing to see! [smile]  The announcer was pretty much right at the end: here's something you may never see again on television.....and we haven't!

Thanks for sharing!

Ed Lubanski also won FOUR ABC Eagles in 1959 (Team, Team All-Events, Singles, and Regular All-Events). You could say he was having a good year.
