Awesome wrestling maneuver but I still think he should've given him roses first, no? A wonderful bit of vintage European wrestling memorabilia. Does anyone recognize the language?

Awesome post.

My educated guess is Czech. It's definitely a Slavic language and the word "Ceske" that appears in the bottom line of print definitely means Czech. It seems like a post card for a Czech thing is probably in Czech?

A laborious entry into Google Translate says that the printed part on top says, "Remember the brotherly unity threatened."
The bottom is translated as "Czech Sokol cargo" which I would guess would actually mean "Made in Sokol, CZ".
I didn't even try to decipher the handwritten parts...
