    Description

    1978 Fritzie Zivic Testimonial Presentational Trophy. Growing up with five brothers during the Great Depression in a tough immigrant neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Zivic would explain years later, "You either had to fight or stay in the house. We went out." Best remembered for his brutal and ultimately victorious battle with Henry "Hammering Hank" Armstrong to take the world welterweight title in 1940, Zivic was presented this trophy by a buddy just six years before his passing after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. The wood and brass memento features a pair of boxers facing off atop a polished wood platform measuring 4x8x8", with the height of the boxers expanding that dimension to twelve inches. An engraved plaque reads, "Fritzie Zivic Testimonial, Nov. 5, 1978, From Your Buddy Skippy." Light handling wear but no troubling flaws.

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