    Description

    1926 Jack Dempsey vs. Gene Tunney Heavyweight Championship Full Ticket. Jack Dempsey was one of the most beloved boxers of the first half of the 20th Century, and with good reason. Taking on the best, he plowed through his opponents with sixty-six wins and six losses. First winning the heavyweight championship in 1919, he would hold the title until 1926. It was then that he matched up against Gene Tunney. In this bout, Dempsey would lose on points in ten rounds.

    Offered here is a very rare full ticket from this title bout. Full tickets are extremely difficult to find, as the crowd of 120,557 was the largest for a sporting event other than racing or soccer. Few tickets went unused. Two corners and one piece of an edge have chipped off, holding the ticket to Fair condition, but the ticket retains its eye appeal and presents well. This ticket was good for a ringside seat at the price of $27.50. Encapsulated "Authentic" by PSA.
