    Description

    1971 Goldflake Muhammad Ali #24 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. On September 5, 1960, an eighteen year old Cassius Clay stood proudly on the top level of an Olympic podium in Rome as the American national anthem played in his honor. Clay's professional debut was at the Freedom Hall State Fairground in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, a six-round meeting with the thirty year old police chief of Fayetteville, West Virginia, Tunney Hunsaker on October 29, 1960. After the bout, Hunsaker would report, "Clay was as fast as lightning. I tried every trick I knew to throw at him off balance but he was just too good." And so began the path to a 1964 meeting with Sonny Liston at Miami Beach, and the Heavyweight Championship belt. Offered is a SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 example of card #24 from the 1971 Goldflake "Famous Sportsmen" series featuring the man they call "The Greatest." We cannot guarantee this card will cross to a PSA 8.5 or a 92 from the current SGC judges.
