    Description

    1910 E-Unc Candy Jack Johnson and James Jeffries SGC-Graded Pair (2). Each card has been graded 20 FR 1.5 by SGC. Presumed to have been issued to commemorate what was being touted as the fight of the ages, these two rarities are believed to have been integral parts to boxes of candy. On July 4, 1910, Jack Johnson (SGC 20 FR 1.5) and James Jeffries (SGC 20 FR 1.5) went 14 rounds before Johnson knocked out Jeffries handing him his only career loss. Considering Jeffries returned to boxing after six years for no other reason but to beat the first African-American heavyweight champion, his loss was a blow to not only Jeffries legacy but to racism everywhere. The fear of racial violence prompted promoters to force the crowd of 30,000 to check in all guns and refused to let alcohol be sold at the fight. Both items display multiple creases but have retained nice colors and glossy surfaces. An appealing pair with historical relevance.
