Description

Clearly picturing three of the greatest champions of the squared-circle, the presented lot of display pieces is highlighted by an original Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling broadside from 1938. Measuring 22x28, the heavy-stock advertisement promoted the Louis vs. Schmeling Fight Pictures as well as Kidnapped which was released in 1938. Surface and edge wear associated with a piece of this size are present, while the reverse displays tape repairs that reunite the three-piece poster. Also included in the lot is a matted 18x23 Rocky Marciano heavy-stock fight poster (EX-MT) hailing from the early 1950s and a 1920s Gene Tunney Victor Records (now RCA) advertisement measuring 21x11 displaying significant edge wear.
