    Description

    Muhammad Ali Signed Sports Illustrated Magazines Run of 37. Incredibly comprehensive offering was a visionary project for one dedicated fan of the charismatic Heavyweight Champ, who acquired high-grade copies (EX-MT or better), sans mailing label, of every S.I. to feature Ali on the cover. He then proceeded to have every one autographed, at great expense, in the mid-1990's when Ali could still offer an attractive signature. Adding even further appeal to the proceedings, Ali signed "Cassius Clay" twice for his earliest appearances as a coverboy, and "Muhammad Ali AKA Cassius Clay" for the next eight. The balance features his standard autograph. The sharpie signatures overwhelmingly rate 9/10 or better, though nine (all the standard "Muhammad Ali" variation) rate between 6/10 and 8/10. Not included in the count is a thirty-eighth Ali autograph, signed upon a card that reads, "This signature is for a future issue of Sports Illustrated that may be issued in my honor." All magazines are attractively matted and framed in groups of three, in chronological order, for display. Sadly, Ali's deteriorating medical condition makes duplication of this remarkable set impossible, so collectors could consider this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Each autograph is accompanied by its own certificate of authenticity from Online Authentics, the marketing company that represents the Champ's autograph activities. LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from PSA/DNA.
