    Description

    1888 N162 John L. Sullivan SGC 40 VG 3. Graded 40 VG 3 by SGC, tied with others at this grade but only four known higher. Corner wear as seen with close to perfect centering and rich colors. The reverse has light soiling and a few small specs of surface loss. The nicely detailed full figure portrait of the Irish heavyweight champion offers insight into the daunting task opponents faced as they bravely or foolishly entered the ring. A solid middle grade example.
