    Description

    1952 Rocky Marciano Signed Photograph Postcard PSA/DNA Authentic. Considered to be one of the greatest champions in boxing, Rocky Marciano is the only World Heavyweight Champion to go undefeated (and untied) throughout his career. Holding the title belt from 1952 to 1955, Marciano held off hopeful champs such as Jersey Joe Walcott, Archie Moore, Ezzard Charles, Don Cockell and Roland La Starza. Marciano was killed in a plane accident in 1969, just hours before his 46th birthday.

    With his untimely death, Marciano is one of the tougher signatures to acquire in 1950's boxing circles. The offered postcard pictures him in fight trunks and gloves with a facsimile inscription of "Yours in Sports, Rocky Marciano." It has been signed on the reverse side as, "Very best to you 'Arthur' - wishing you the best always - Rocky Marciano." The signature is in 8/10 ink and the postcard is postally used, postmarked March 2, 1952. There is tape affixed to the front photo side of the card, as well as some staining on the signature side, rendering a grade of Poor to Fair. However, overall the postcard is an excellent representation of Marciano's desirable signature. Encapsulated PSA/DNA Authentic.
