    Description

    1910 Jeffries vs. Johnson 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, exhibiting typical corner wear but none of the creasing, staining or tearing typical of century old paper collectibles. A marvelous keepsake with wonderful period graphics that recall a very different time in our nation's cultural and athletic history.
