    1964 Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) Signed After Party Ticket Most Likely Signed the Night He Became Heavyweight Champion. The career of Muhammad Ali has had more iconic moments than any other in the history of pugilism--the "Phantom Punch," the Rumble, the Thrilla--but there's nothing like the first time, and his assumption of the sport's most celebrated title at the Miami Beach Convention Center on February 25, 1964 could certainly be considered Ali's greatest victory of all. Like his other most famous bouts, it was a mixture of the sweet science and gritty determination that won the day.

    Following his victory, Clay attended a victory party held at the Fontainebleau Hotel. This ticket was almost assuredly signed by the newly minted champ the night he became champion. The ticket (5.5x1.75") was issued by Inter-Continental Promotions and invited the possessor to an after party in honor of the victor. We can imagine the new champ was in a celebratory mood given his victory. His 10/10 ballpoint signature takes top billing on this NM ticket. This is sourced directly from the family of Dundee-McDonald Enterprises treasure Frank Lewis. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
