    Description

    Early 1980's Muhammad Ali Training Worn & Signed Trunks from Angelo Dundee Collection. They say that the better part of valor is discretion, but for this warrior of the ring the bell had to be answered even though both his "float" and his "sting" had long since fluttered away. These red "MacGregor" trunks date to Ali's training for his ill-advised final two bouts, one-sided beatings at the gloved hands of Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick. Wear is solid and authenticity is assured by the autographs of both the Champ and his famous trainer, the latter adding a "Worn by The Greatest, Ali" notation. The three-time Heavyweight Champ adds his popular sketch of a ring. Each autograph rates 9/10. Some dye bleed from the red striping is of little concern. A moving tribute to the bravery of one of America's most beloved sporting figures. The February 2014 sale of Ali's first Liston fight gloves for $836,500 should indicate where the market for this iconic athlete is heading. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
