    Description

    1890's John L. Sullivan Cabinet Photograph. Commanding photographic image of the last bare-knuckle Heavyweight Champion of the World was issued by the era's top sporting periodical, The Police Gazette. The sepia image stands as one of the finest portraits we've seen of the Boston Strongboy, and it finds a home on an elegant cardboard mount with just the slightest hint of wear at the corners and a beautiful gold scripted caption at bottom. Dimensions are 4.25x6.5".
