    1932 U.S. Caramel Gene Tunney #15 PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher. Gene Tunney was the controversial of one of the most famous boxing matches of the 20th Century. Gene Tunney fought Jack Dempsey for the second time on September 22, 1927 at Soldier Field in Chicago. Dempsey landed a volley of punches sending Tunney crashing to the canvas. But Dempsey failed to go immediately to a neutral corner and referee Dave Barry delayed the count giving Tunney several extra seconds to regain his composure. Dempsey lost that fight which ultimately sent him into retirement. Thus was born the celebrated "long count" fight that has remained a controversy to this day. If any boxer deserves to be called the "Ruth" or Gehrig" of boxing it is the great Gene Tunney. Offered is one of the highest quality examples of his '32 U.S. Caramel card that Tunney so rightfully deserves to be a part of. Not just a boxer, Tunney became a published author when the book "A Man Must Fight" came out in 1932. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of six in NM-MT with none graded higher.
