    Description

    1978 Drew "Bundini" Brown Cornerman's Jacket Worn for Muhammad Ali vs. Leon Spinks II Bout.

    UPDATE: Please note that fight attribution in title is erroneous. This garment was worn by Brown for the 1976 Muhammad Ali vs. Jean Pierre Coopman bout.

    Ali's close confidant and cornerman wore this garment as he watched Ali claim his third Heavyweight Championship, successfully avenging his loss to Spinks seven months earlier. This would likewise prove to be the last victory of Ali's storied career.

    Jacket is crafted in white satin with a terrycloth interior, with red and green trim and a special "Made Expressly for Muhammad Ali" label from "Everlast" at right chest. Left chest reads, "Bundini" in green tackle twill, with larger lettering announcing "Muhammad Ali" on reverse. Ali has signed chest in bold black sharpie. The original inventory tag from the famous sale of Bundini Brown's unpaid storage locker sale is attached to the front zipper. LOA from Craig Hamilton. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

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