    1927 Gene Tunney vs. Jack Dempsey Beech Nut Triptych Advertising Sign. Here we offer a massive (2' x 5') portion of the 1927 Beech Nut advertisement which reproduces the epic "Long Count Fight" between Gene Tunney and Jack Dempsey. The vast imagery captures the site of the fight, Chicago's hallowed Soldier Field, in all its epic glory. Sign folds into three sections, and a die-cut topper that formerly comprised its upper-most piece has since been lost. Expected separation along the seams due to years of fold-out display. An outstanding vintage memento for serious fans of the sweet science.
