    1964 Muhammad Ali "Bear Huntin'" Bundini Brown Worn Jacket. A blue denim jacket once played prominently in the early history of the great Ali, whose mentor and motivator Bundini Brown wore it on several occasions in November of 1964 as the date of the famous Sonny Liston rematch approached. The brash young Champion, who had an identical jacket, stalked Liston at his training grounds, letting "The Big Bear" know that he was after him as he marched the streets with a bear collar in hand and the jacket, with embroidered "Bear Huntin'," on his back. Dangling from the chest of each jacket, and clearly visible in several news photos from the time, were miniature white boxing gloves with the handwritten words "The Big Fight, Miami Beach 1964." The jacket shows fine wear from this exciting time in boxing history, with "Lee [size] 48" tagging inside collar. A perfect gold sharpie signature from Ali resides on the chest. LOA from Craig Hamilton / JO Sports.
