    1975 Joe Frazier & Eddie Futch Signed "Thrilla in Manilla" Photograph & Ticket Stub and Frazier-Foreman I Full Ticket. Tickets and programs from Frazier and Ali's greatest moment, "The Thrilla in Manila," are all but non-existent in the hobby, as very few made the journey back across the ocean to American shores. This oversized "Ringside" ticket stub (7x4.25") from the brutal bout in the Philippines should be included with the scarcest of superfight offerings. Exhibits heavy wear with creasing and album remnants on verso but is completely intact. The bout's importance and the ticket's scarcity should override any of the aforementioned distractions

    Black and white photograph (8x10") taken during the bout prep is signed by Frazier and his legendary trainer, Eddie Futch who adds the inscription "To Anita, My Manilla 'road buddy.'" While the image exhibits binder holes at bottom, surface crease and general wear, the blue ballpoint pen autographs and inscription are bold and NM. Plus the Thrilla inscription overshadows any condition concerns.

    A stubless, illustrated full ticket (2.75x6.25") to the first Frazier-Foreman bout on January 22, 1973, in which Foreman stopped Frazier to win the heavyweight title, exhibits creasing but is intact and gorgeous. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
