    Description

    Circa 1890's Tom West Signed Cabinet Photograph. Tommy West was a welterweight fighter who fought throughout the 1890's, finishing up his career with his last recorded fight in 1906. West was a durable scrapper who fought some of the best fighters of the era including; Charles (Kid) McCoy, Joe Walcott, Jack Bonner and Mysterious Billy Smith. One of West more notable matches occurred in 1901 when he moved up in weight and fought Tommy Ryan for the middleweight Championship. West gave Ryan all he could handle before being knocked out in the seventeenth round. This cabinet photo measures 4.25x6.5. There is slight edge wear, a few light smudge marks and scuffs, and two tack holes at the top and bottom of the image. The photo has been boldly signed, "Yours Truly Tom West" in the bottom border and displays very well. LOA from Craig Hamilton / JO Sports.
