    Bill Madden, Jack Root and Jim Coffroth Boxing Signed Letters. Signed when boxing played second fiddle to only baseball are these three autographed letters. Each has the customary fold marks from mailing.

    Included are signed letters from Jim Coffroth, the pioneer of boxing promoters. The 8.5x8.5" letter is on Mission Coffroth's Street Arena letterhead.

    The second item is a Jack Root signed 6x9" letter penned in blue ballpoint on Morrison Hotel stationery. Root was a light heavyweight champ who actually had a heavyweight bout during his career.

    Billy Madden, a Hall of Fame manager, completes this listing with a written letter, dated 1898 on Hotel Leland stationery. Slight paper loss on the bottom of the lined paper. PSA/DNA and James Spence Authentication have declined to rule due to lack of exemplars.
