    Description

    1970's Muhammad Ali Handwritten Speech Notes. Twenty-one handwritten pages on legal-sized paper is the work of the brilliant and controversial three-time Heavyweight Champion of the World whose conversion to Islam, and his resultant conscientious objection to the Vietnam War draft, divided the country along cultural lines. His religion is the topic here, and the text strongly suggests that these were notes for a speech or sermon. Though Ali obviously made no secret of his faith, there are some statements in this text that are more controversial than one might typically associate with the beloved boxing icon. All text is 9/10 or better, and pages shows handling wear and storage folds, but nothing that could accurately characterized as damage. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
