    1910 Johnson vs. Jeffries Oversized Period Photographic Prints Lot of 4. The first in this format we've encountered, the four images presented here will nonetheless be familiar to collectors of vintage boxiana as having derived from the famous series of postcards shot and issued by "Dana" photographic studios. But these 24x28" (framed dimensions) images positively dwarf those mailers, and in collectibles as in life, size does matter. Admittedly these images show the signs of a century of age, with scattered tears and deep toning of the paper construction that one suspects is the result of decades hanging in a smoky tavern, but we'll let you judge the aesthetics for yourself. Considering the fact that this was arguably the most socially significant boxing match in the history of the American prize ring, some concessions must be made.
