    Description

    1912 T227 Miner's Extra Jack Johnson SGC 20 Fair 1.5. Jack Johnson was a man who battled just as hard outside of the ring as he did inside. Johnson became the World Heavyweight Champion by defeating Tommy Burns in Australia on December 26, 1908, becoming the first black man to accomplish that feat. Today, collectors' appreciation of this first African-American Heavyweight Champion has only continued to grow, considerably moreso in the wake of Ken Burns' PBS documentary "Unforgivable Blackness." Johnson is one of the most highly collected boxers and few collectibles bearing his name or image can match the beauty of his T227 Miner's Extra "Series of Champions" tobacco card. Graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5, the card has creasing and corner wear plus one stain. A scarce Johnson collectible.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
