Action Figures Friday: Steamboat and Youngblood challenge Sgt. Slaughter

Last week we debuted out new series called "Action Figures Friday" and featured a classic look at the feud of the year in 1975: Wahoo McDaniel and Paul Jones vs. Gene and Ole Anderson.

This week we jump to 1982 and take a look at one of the greatest teams in Jim Crockett Promotions history Ricky Steamboat and Jay Youngblood. They stand in the ring challenging Sgt. Slaughter to go get his tag team partner Don Kernodle and defend their NWA World tag team championships on Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling.

Another great shot from collector Mike Simmerman. We appreciate him sharing his figures and his photographs with all of us on the Mid-Atlantic Gateway. Another great shot coming next week!
