    Description

    1890's John L. Sullivan Cabinet Photo SGC 40 VG 3. Impressive photograph of the greatest figure in 19th century pugilism with his fighting record boldly printed on the reverse, the latest date entry from 1889. The sepia image finds the Boston Strong Boy in formal garb, looking far more dapper than one might expect of the world's most dangerous fist fighter. A lack of studio stamping keep its origins a mystery but printed along the bottom of the front is "Your's Truly. John L. Sullivan." The image area has but one arch shaped line which is not a surface scratch and appears to be a negative imperfection and is part of the actual photo. The 4-1/8" x 6-3/8" card mount has but one small area of surface loss in upper right corner.
