    Description

    1937 Joe Louis vs. Jim Braddock Heavyweight Boxing Championship Full Ticket & Photograph. In his June 22, 1937 shot at the title, Joe Louis took eight rounds to beat Braddock on a knockout, but still wanted a rematch with Max Schmeling in order to feel he was the champion. He would get this rematch the following year and win in the first round, but it all came as the result of winning this first title match-up with Braddock. Although Braddock knocked Louis down in the first round, Louis would recover and give Braddock a pounding to soundly cement his celebrity status.

    Aside from two small scuffs in the top border and adhesive residue on the rain check, the ticket is in otherwise Near Mint condition. The photograph, measuring approximately 7x9," is an original photograph of the Comiskey Park crowd attending the event. Overall framed dimensions are 14x15."

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
