    Description

    1910 Jack Johnson vs. James Jeffries Full Ticket. Following Jack Johnson's assumption of the Heavyweight Championship in 1908, the former titleholder Jeffries was wooed out of five years of retirement to reclaim what white America believed was rightfully theirs. On Independence Day, 1910, the overwhelmingly white crowd at Reno, Nevada saw their worst fears realized, as Johnson battered the overmatched Jeffries for fourteen rounds before his corner saved him from an inevitable fifteenth round knockout by throwing in the towel. Presented is one of the rare few unused tickets from this most culturally relevant boxing match of the twentieth century. The ticket is crease free and has a few minor marks. Three spots of glue are visible on the reverse from scrapbook application.
