    1927 Jack Dempsey vs. Gene Tunney "Long Count" Full Ticket. Jack Dempsey fought Gene Tunney for the second time on September 22, 1927 at Soldier Field in Chicago. Tunney out-pointed Dempsey until the seventh round when Dempsey landed a volley of punches sending Tunney crashing to the canvas. Dempsey failed to go immediately to a neutral corner and referee Dave Barry delayed the count. But instead of picking up the count with the timekeeper, Barry started the count at one, giving Tunney several extra seconds to regain his feet.

    The very next round Tunney dropped Dempsey with a chopping right and Barry immediately started the count, without sending Tunney to a neutral corner! Presented here is a full, official ticket to this event that includes section, row and seat numbers. The ticket measures 2.5x6.75" and is in fine condition with a clean front and back and rounding of the corners.
