Verso, printed: "A TRIBUTE TO THE LATE PETE KNIGHT. PETE KNIGHT won his first World's Championship in 1926 and held it for several years. In 1930 the Rodeo Association named him Reserve Champion and he also placed second the following year. In 1932, he was officially hailed as World's Champion and repeated in 1933. He was unplaced in 1934, but was again crowned Champion in 1935 and 1936. He was well on the way to another Championship when he met his death at Hayward, California, on Sunday, May 23rd, 1937, when thrown and trampled to death by an outlaw horse. He died like a true son of the West, but lives on in the hearts of Westerners.
