    19th Century Boxing Cabinet Photos Collection (9). Offered is a gallery of nine 19th Century cabinet photos featuring some of the most important pugilists of the era. Sources include familiar names like "Richard K. Fox," Joe Wood and New York Illustrated News. The past 125 years have not been kind to the protective mounts but images have survived quiet well for their age. Includes: 1-5) Richard K. Fox - Bob Fitzsimmons (tape and surface loss to image), Joe Goddard, Jim Hall, Billy McLean (Heavy crease affecting bottom quarter of image) and Jem Smith (Tear in upper right portion); 6) New York Illustrated News - "The Champions" Billy Edwards. Photo by Joe Wood, 1883; 7) J. Beardsley - Donaldson (Heavy spot staining); 8-9) Joe Wood - Joe Choynski and George Godfrey (Small corner and edge segment chipped off). In any condition these relics pose a hearty challenge for modern hobbyists to acquire.
