    1978 Ali vs. Spinks Fight Program. The Bill Gallo artwork on the cover of this tough program for the famed "Battle of New Orleans" between Leon Spinks and Muhammad Ali hits even harder today, as our perception of the Superdome has been forever changed by the suffering it witnessed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. But on September 15, 1978, the Big Easy landmark served as the venue for the great Muhammad Ali's last taste of glory, as the thirty-six year old fighter reclaimed his Championship belt by avenging his loss to Spinks seven months earlier. This rare program from Ali's final victory shows only light wear to the cover and two pen marks on an interior page to differ from its original state, clearly one of the finest examples extant. Sourced from the personal collection of a sports writer covering the bout.
