    1963 Sonny Liston vs. Floyd Patterson Phantom Tickets Lot of 2. Sonny Liston showed the boxing world he was indeed the top heavyweight when he floored Floyd Patterson July 22, 1963. Three knockdowns in the opening round spelled the end of the line for Patterson. Following Liston's drubbing of Patterson, he would take on a young Cassius Clay. We all know what happened when the new star was born.

    These two tickets were issued for the original fight date but not used. Liston suffered a knee sprain and fight was moved from April 4 to July 22. The green ticket ($50) was issued for ringside while the second ticket ($10) is listed as arena. Both show light corner wear but are crease free.

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