    Description

    20th Century International Boxing Card Collection (150+) With 1960 Cassius Clay Rookie. Athletic competition is one of the commonalities that people of all cultures share throughout history with boxing taking us farther back in time than most. The games may be different but the passion shown by fans and the desire to make a connection via collectibles or other form of keepsake is universal. This is one of two extensive selections of boxing cards that originate around the globe. There are over a dozen different countries and forty different card promotions represented, most dating to the 1920-1960 era. Brands include Gartmann Chocolate Series 585 Near Set, Sanella Margarine, Jasmatzi, Panini, Alfa Chocolate, Denia Powdered Milk, Hemmets Journal and many others. The boxers found in this presentation include greats like Tunney, Schmeling, Holmes, Liston, Patterson and Cassius Clay "Ali." to names only the fanatic pugilist fan would recognize. This is a fascinating "instant collection" type gallery with too much to list here. Please see our web site for a detailed list of the contents of this collection.
