    1912 Jack Johnson vs. Jim Flynn Full Ticket. "Fireman Jim" Flynn did not prove to be the Great White Hope that the white boxing world had hoped for this Independence Day, instead turning to the dirty tactic of repeated head butting despite numerous referee warnings before his ultimate disqualification for fouls. Here we find a rare unused ticket for the bout in Las Vegas, New Mexico, a five dollar general admission ticket apparently owned by a fight fan unwilling to brave the ninety-five degree heat of the midday desert sun for the Jack Johnson Heavyweight title defense. The ticket exhibits some water staining and general edge wear but still presents nicely. A paper clip rust stain is mainly confined to verso. Not a pristine example, but well within the realm of collectibility.
