    1958 Cassius Clay Training Worn & Signed Handwrap. Offered in this lot is the amateur handwrap of Cassius Clay, used by him in the Columbia Street Gym of Louisville while training in 1958. This is an elastic handwrap which is approximately eighty inches long and two inches wide. The wrap has a manufacturer's label from "POST." Adjacent to the label, Clay has boldly signed in ink, "Your Friend always Cassius Clay 19-58." Clay originally presented the handwrap to a childhood friend, Larry Duncan. Mr. Duncan knew the Clay family and actually fought Cassius Clay's brother Rudy in the amateurs. Mr. Duncan was also instrumental in putting Clay on a local Louisville radio program. Mr. Duncan sold the handwrap to noted Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali collector Pete Morkovin who has supplied a LOA. Here's a rare opportunity to obtain an early piece of boxing equipment, used by Cassius Clay, which he has autographed with one of his earliest documented signatures. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports. Additional LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
