    Description

    1927 Dempsey vs. Sharkey Ticket Stub. In front of 82,000 passionate fans at New York's Yankee Stadium, Jack Dempsey knocked out Jack Sharkey 45 seconds in to the 7th round and walked away with a purse topping a quarter-million dollars. One of the spectators, which included dozens of celebrities and athletes, hung on to the offered ticket stub as a memento, surviving the next 90+ years. With moderate-to-heavy wear exhibited there is a single crease running vertically through it. The reverse features some sort of ink stamping.
