Description

Boxing buffs score a knockout with this rare and important early tobacco card. Offered is an 1888-1889 N386 Spaulding & Merrick prizefighters card #7 John Sullivan. Heavyweight champion Sullivan is depicted in an iconic crossed-arms pose in an image as bold as the brawler’s considerable mustache. Designated Authentic, this is one of just three examples certified by PSA with two at this level and one higher. Superficial obverse creasing and fading of the reverse side stamping are trumped by the impressive image and incredible scarcity.
