    1970 Muhammad Ali vs. Jerry Quarry On-Site Boxing Poster. On October 26, 1970 Muhammad Ali made his reappearance in the ring after a forced retirement of three years, which stemmed from his refusal to accept induction into the armed forces. Despite the three year layoff Ali contracted to fight a very difficult fighter, "Irish" Jerry Quarry in his first fight back. Quarry was a seasoned veteran with a deadly punch and many observers thought Ali foolish for taking him on at the outset of his comeback. Those throwing cautionary signals were certainly surprised when Ali dominated the action and stopped Quarry in only three rounds in Atlanta. Presented here is an official on site poster for this event. The heavy stock 14" x 22" poster (framed at 15x23.5") pictures both fighters. The rarity has slight paper loss on the bottom, a red ink smudge on the white perimeter and at least one crease (center).

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