    1965 Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston II "I Was There" Pennant. And now we find the proverbial needle in a haystack. The Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston II bout was sparsely attended by 2,434 fight fans in Lewiston, Maine in 1965. We don't know how many on-site 28" pennants were produced, but it couldn't have been many. We scoured the auction archives and have found only two others in the last two decades. Offered is probably of the finest surviving of those other two. Tack marks are visible on the upper left corner and tip. Both sets of tassels are firmly in-place. "World Heavyweight Championship I Was There Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny Liston Lewiston, Maine May 25, 1965" is screened on front. Only the slightest hint of cracking is visible on the graphics. The lower edge of the yellow felt reinforcement is raised. EX to EX/MT in our estimation.
