Nat Langham is framed, measuring 23x26" overall, was a Middleweight Champion of the 1840's and 1850's. William "Paddy" Gill was an Irish boxer in the 1840's and this print appears to have been on cardboard stock. It has had the name and statistics cut off, but that piece is included in the lot. Measures 20.5x24." Finally, a Police Gazette insert from Feb. 1st, 1896 features Peter Maher and Robert "Bob" Fitzsimmons, advertising a Feb. 14th bout for $10,000 and a Police Gazette belt. Measures 21x27" as matted. Typical folds and wear make these generally grade about Good, but all present very well as matted out.
