    Description

    C. 1910 "Boxing" Series Jack Johnson Postcard SGC 30 Good 2 - E125 Portrait. Jack Johnson was a man who battled just as hard outside of the ring as he did inside it. Johnson became the World Heavyweight Champion by defeating Tommy Burns in Australia on December 26, 1908, becoming the first black man to accomplish that feat. Today, collectors' appreciation of this first African-American Heavyweight Champion has only continued to grow, considerably more so in the wake of Ken Burns' PBS documentary "Unforgivable Blackness." Johnson is one of the most highly collected boxers. Offered is a scarce circa. 1910 post card featuring Johnson in the same pose as found on other boxing cards including his E125 American Caramel card. Graded SGC 30 Good 2. One of just five graded by SGC, this is one of two in Good with none higher.
