    Battling Nelson - Terry McGovern 1906 Full Unused Ticket On March 14, 1906 World Lightweight Champion Battling Nelson fought "Terrible" Terry McGovern at the National Athletic Club in Philadelphia in a non-title affair. Nelson was declared the winner after six rounds. Presented here is an extremely rare, full official ticket to the fight. The ticket measures 2.5" x 5.25", names both fighters and includes section, row and seat number. The stub is firmly attached, there is a crease in lower left corner and some light edge and surface wear and some glue residue on reverse where ticket was mounted. This very rare ticket represents the only time these two early lightweight greats ever met in the ring. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.

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