    1901 "Famous Fights - Police Budget Edition" Twelve Volume Set Plus 1925 "The Prize Ring" Book Limited to 1,000 Copies. A nice Very Good copy of "The Prize Ring" (#982 of 1,000 printed) leads off this boxing lot. The remaining three books are bound volumes of "Famous Fights" newsletters from the Police Budget Edition. Beginning in March of 1901 with Volume 1, Issue 1, this goes through Volume 12 but the later issues are all undated. Each book includes three volumes in each. Unfortunately, the condition of these volumes is very poor, with most of the pages now loose and the paper extremely brittle. Still, the lithography of famous boxers inside is highly desirable and well worth overlooking the condition.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
