    1919 Dempsey vs. Willard Full Ticket. On July 4, 1919, Jack Dempsey fought and defeated the mammoth Jess Willard to win the World Heavyweight Title, and in the process ushered in a new era in boxing. It was a one sided affair from the outset with Willard taking a terrible beating before finally succumbing to Dempsey's sledge hammer blows. Presented here is a full, unused ticket from this event, which took place in Toledo, Ohio. The ticket is in excellent condition, with no creases, and only light soiling. Both fighters names appear boldly across the front and the section, row, and seat assignment are listed on the stub, that is still firmly attached. A nice example of a highly desirable full ticket. LOA from Craig Hamilton / JO Sports.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
