Boxing Autographs

  2 Lots      




Lot 136.  Joe Louis Autograph. Vintage fountain pen signature apparently cut from a typed letter and then neatly mounted on a 3” x 5” card. Louis was one of the greatest of the heavyweights. ESPN ranked him 11th on its list of greatest athletes of the 20th century. Muhammad Ali was the only boxer rated higher. Louis won 54 of 71 fights (76 percent) by knockout. During World War II, he donated his purses from two bouts to the war effort. He also fought 96 exhibitions before U.S. troops in Europe, North Africa and the U.S. When he was called “a credit to his race,” Jimmy Cannon, a sportswriter, said, “Yes, Louis is a credit to his race – the human race.” Louis passed away in 1981. His nm-m 8 to mint 9 autograph, perfect for display, has been authenticated by Kevin Keating.
Winning Bid $152     


Lot 137.  Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Floyd Patterson and Paul Berlenbach Autographs. Ali and Robinson (died 1989) generally are regarded as two of the top 10 boxers of all-time. Ali’s signature, dated “10-16-92,” is nm-m to mint 9 and comparatively large on an unlined red 3” x 5” index card. Robinson’s is strong on a 2.5” x 1.25” cut on an index card; nm 7 with the tail of the “y” missing. Patterson (d. 2006) was the youngest boxer to win the world heavyweight championship and the first to regain it. He signed an unlined index card; mint 9. Berlenbach (d. 1985) held the light heavyweight title from 1925-26. Nat Fleischer considered him to be the tenth best light heavyweight of all time. His cut signature applied to an index card is nm-m 8 to mint 9. All four of these fighters are in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Authenticated by Kevin Keating.
