Max Schmeling Boxing's Heavyweight Champion hand signed 3x5 card (DEC)

This 3x5 index card is hand signed by Max Schmeling.  This index card has a very slight bend near the bottom right hand corner.  It runs from 1 inch from the bottom right hand corner to 1/4 up the bottom right hand corner's side.  As you can guess, very small and barely noticeable.  Priced accordingly.

Maximillian Adolph Otto Siegfried Schmeling (September 28, 1905 – February 2, 2005) was a German boxer who was heavyweight champion of the world between 1930 and 1932. His two fights with Joe Louis in the late 1930s transcended boxing, and became worldwide social events because of their national associations. He was ranked 55 on Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time.

While Schmeling cooperated with the German government's efforts to play down the increasingly negative international world view of its domestic policies during the 1930s he was not a member of the Nazi party. However, it became known long after the Second World War that Schmeling had risked his own life to save the lives of two Jewish children in 1938.


Schmeling signatures have always been scarce and now they are disappearing due to private collectors and institutions purchasing any signatures that reach the market.
