    Description

    1890's John L. Sullivan Cabinet Photo "Yours Truly" SGC 84 NM 7. 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 image area is clean, any scratches seen affect the plastic casing and not the card. The 4-1/8" x 6-3/8" card mount has little to no wear, graded SGC 84 NM 7.
