    Description

    1895 N310 Mayo Cut Plug John L. Sullivan SGC 40 VG 3. "Name at Top" variation. John L. Sullivan was the last great bare-knuckle champion and the first national sports hero of America. No one had ever seen the likes of the "Boston Strong Boy," who toured the nation, taking on all comers, with an offer of $1000 if they could last four rounds. No one could. With his epic 76-round victory over Jake Kilrain in 1889, his legend grew dramatically. Such a prominent figure was Sullivan, that when he was defeated in 1892 by Gentleman Jim Corbett, it's been said women and men across the nation wept. This iconic image is blemish free, just off-center. Graded SGC 40 VG 3. Reverse surface toning and soiling, honest corner wear and horizontal centering account for the grade.
