    Description

    Circa 1942 Joe Louis Training Worn Headgear. Important treasure of boxiana finds the Brown Bomber at dead center of a sixteen-year era of dominance in which he stumbled just once, in a defeat at the gloved hands of Max Schmeling--a loss he'd later avenge in brutal fashion. Leading boxing collectibles expert believes that the markings on the "Everlast" brand relic is likely that of Ring Magazine, whose famous collection originally sold at auction years ago. The leather chin strap is broken, and a tear beneath the maker's label exposes the horsehair padding inside, but this relic from the most celebrated Heavyweight Champion in history still presents beautifully. LOA from Craig Hamilton. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
