As a boy in canada my friends and I watched these great bowlers on ABC and also on a great 10 minute TV show called "make that Spare". Don carter was the superstar of the era.
he was the arnold Palmer of bowling, I'd say. A gentleman who became emblematic of his sport.
Only about 10 years old at that time,
I nevertheless remember my awe and admiration for this fine man.

My heartfelt good wishes go out to his loved ones.

Oh wow, I was just thinking about Don Carter 2 days ago. I was looking at my 25+ year old Don Carter bowling glove. Tatered, worn out, with holes in it. Yeah, the old Don Carter bowling glove. I bought my first one back in the very late 50's or early 60's. I was so proud of that glove as a young kid. I copied Don's style. My pinky finger tucked up under the ball, with my D.C. Bowling glove. Who could beat me LOL? As years went on and bowling gloves became more and more popular, I stuck with what brought to the dance. I remember back in the late 70's Tommy Hudson came to town and had a group of us together to enhance our bowling abilities or lack thereof. Tommy finally got over to me. First thing he said was get rid of the pinky, get a better bowling glove. He said my style was wrong. when he finally straightened me out and went on his way to the next chump. I said to myself, if that's the way Don Carter bowled it's good enough for me. Later on we got our lanes (about 23 bowling wanna be's) and a chance to bowl against or beat Tommy Hudson. Had my blue LT 51 officially signed Tommy Hudson bowling ball (which was given to me because the former owner didn't like it). Well, long and short of it Tommy bowled a 236 and I bowled a 251. Thanks for the tips Tommy. I whupped everyone that night. D.C. Bowling glove pinky underneath my ball, etc.

Well, the years have come and gone. I had the Mickey Mantle's, Stan Musial's; Bob Cousey's, Bob Petite's; Bart Starr's as heroes. I'm now 66 and Don was the Man, is the Man and will always be the Man. Thank you Don. Jesse Davis, Bradenton, Fl.
