Description

    1950's Archie Moore Fight Worn, Signed Robe. His professional career covered a staggering twenty-eight years, earning him the well deserved nickname "The Old Mongoose" for his tenacity and durability. His career knockout total of 131 is a record in the sport, and he ranks fourth on The Ring magazine's list of the hundred greatest punchers. Prominent boxing website BoxRec names Moore the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the sport's history. But despite his nearly three decades of prizefighting, and pantheon status, scant few relics from Moore have surfaced in the collectibles market. We're happy to address this shortfall with the presented piece, a black floral fabric robe with gold trim that was hand made by one of his ex wives' mothers.

    Originally sold to the Sands Hotel Boxing Museum in Las Vegas by Moore, it was later purchased by renowned boxing collector Bob Case, and is accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Moore, which states that it was worn in several championship matches, including the fights versus Tony Anthony, Yolande Pompey, etc. Letter of provenance from Archie Moore. Letter of provenance from Bob Case. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from SGC Authentic (autograph).
