Rare King of the Ring John L. Sullivan Inscribed " Cham Nov 14. 1902" COA JSA

 The prodigious Boston Strong Boy was an extraordinarily popular figure in the late ninteenth century, and a genuine boxing immortal; the link between bare knuckles and glove fighting, and the first great American sports idol. In an age when professional bare-knuckled bouts often dragged on for 50-plus rounds, few John L fights lasted more than a couple. From 1877 to the turn of the century, Sullivan literally knocked out hundreds of capable men and was the undisputed Champion of the World. He was a broadchested bull; powerful and quick, destroying opponents with either hand, and taking punishment like no other. Many experts still consider him the best heavyweight ever and one of the hardest autographs to ever obtain. 

Presented here is a 21x14 framed and and inscribed 3x5 card "Compliments of John L. Sullivan. Included is a magazine cover with John L. Sullivan on the front cover of Muscle Builder. 

 

Autograph is a "9-10"
