    Description

    Jack Dempsey 1920s Bronzed Fight Worn Boxing Glove Jack Dempsey was one of the most ferocious fighters in ring history. His savage knockout of Jess Willard in the 1919 Heavyweight Championship fight instantly galvanized his legend as the "Manassa Mauler." Through the roaring 1920s Dempsey's thunderous fist pounded out victories against the likes of Bill Brennan, George Carpentier, Luis Firpo and Jack Sharkey. His fights drew record attendance that has not been equaled to this day. Offered here is one of Dempsey's fight worn gloves that was bronzed for the ages. The details of the glove are wonderfully preserved. One can only imagine, gazing at this bronzed covered glove, of the steel that was once inside. 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.
