    Circa 1970 Floyd Patterson Worn & Signed Trunks. We'll excerpt leading boxing collectibles expert Craig Hamilton's letter of opinion to detail his findings:

    "The trunks emanate from the family of Floyd Patterson and come with a letter from the family. The trunks were thought to be from Patterson's fight with Jimmy Ellis on September 14, 1968, but an analysis of the film from the fight and still photographs from the fight did not produce a photo match. Skinner [Victory Satin] likely made these trunks for Patterson and Everlast likely endorsed them. The endorsement leads to the conclusion that the trunks may have been worn in an actual fight or exhibition. The Everlast label dates the trunks to late 1960's, early 1970's."

    The appearance of sweaty wear likewise adds credence to the theory, and blue sharpie signatures at each white hip stripe (8/10) add visual appeal. Copy of letter of provenance from widow of Floyd Patterson. LOA from Craig Hamilton.
