    Description

    1890's John L. Sullivan Cabinet Photo "Yours Truly" SGC 30 Good 2. Impressive photograph of the greatest figure in 19th century pugilism with his fighting record 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 the "Your's Truly. John L. Sullivan." copy strongly suggest these were a souvenir or give-away at Sullivan appearances. The 4-1/8" x 6-3/8" card mount shows some wear and displays much nicer than the technical grade. There is faint writing on the reverse to account for the SGC 30 Good 2 rating.
