    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Uncut Boxing Sheet With Louis, Dempsey, Tunney and Sullivan. Offered is a partial uncut sheet of 1948 Leaf Boxing cards. This was the first and only Boxing edition produced by Leaf Gum and uncut panels like this are rarely encountered and make for truly attention grabbing wall displays. The panel measures approx. 10-1/4" x 14-1/1" containing five cards in each of five rows, twenty cards are complete with portions of one card in each row showing along the right edge. These could easily be matted out of view. Stars included are Joe Louis, Tony Zale, Gene Tunney, John L. Sullivan, Bob Fitzsimmons, Jack Dempsey and Jake LaMotta. A finished product, the cards are printed on both sides with condition issues affecting only a few of the whole cards mainly along the top and edge, some along the bottom. Of the five key names, only Dempsey has any creasing or wrinkles and it is very mild. Others present very nicely. The overall presentation value is excellent which can be elevated with professional matting and framing.
