    Description

    Muhammad Ali and Howard Cosell Signatures. Muhammad Ali signed page and Howard Cosell signed index card. These two made for some of the more entertaining and controversial moments in American sports. Cosell vigorously defended Ali against charges of draft evasion and the two forged a strong friendship and sometimes comedic act during their many interviews.

    Signed 4x6 page is folded in middle and signed index card has some discoloration extending to top of signature.

    "Howard Cosell was a good man and he lived a good life," Ali told the Associated Press after hearing of Cosell's death. "I have been interviewed by many people, but I enjoyed interviews with Howard the best. I hope to meet him one day in the hereafter. I can hear Howard now saying, Muhammad, you're not the man you used to be.' " JSA Auction LOA.
