    Description

    Original 1971 Frazier vs. Ali Closed Caption Television Fight Posters Lot of 20, Vintage Signed by Ali. It has been estimated that more than 300 million viewers followed the devastating action of this Madison Square Garden bout on closed circuit television, watching former Champion Muhammad Ali get sent to the canvas in the fifteenth round and ultimately fall in a decision to current Champ Smokin' Joe Frazier. Weeks after the bout, our consignor found this stack of twenty unused posters in a Lower East Side Manhattan junk shop. He estimates that it was in the early 1980's when he was able to present them to Ali, who signed each one in 10/10 blue ink or black marker. Our authenticators have verified that these are indeed a much earlier and more desirable version of the Greatest's signature. Each poster measures 14x22". The break down value here is obviously tremendous, as the supply of vintage Ali signatures on posters is tiny at best. Dealers with strong boxing clienteles will not want to miss this opportunity. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
