Default cassius clay card

Posted By: Richard

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can help me. I'm trying to workout what type of Cassius Clay card this is and what year it was produced. it measures approx 6.5cm x 9.5cm and is a sticker card which is starting to peal away from its backing. on the back of the actual pic are the words "EL PERIODICO" printed all over the back??

El periodico is Spanish for the newspaper, and there are newspapers in Barcelona and Panama of that name, perhaps others. Obviously your item came from a Spanish language newspaper somewhere.



I don't know, but a guess is that it was a 1992 insert with the Barcelona El Periodico, as Barcelona Spain hosted the 1992 Olympics and Cassius Clay would have been a relevant Olympic subject. That's merely speculation, as I've never before seen the item.

Hi,

Thanks for that, also the backing that the card is stuck to, reads "De artsticamente modesto fue consierado el cartel oficial de la XVI Olimpiada"with a big picture of Olympic rings with the words MELBOURNE 22NOV - 8 DEC 1956

It's a safe bet El Periodico refers to Barcelona's El Periodico, as it's a big commercial newspaper.

I can't tell from your scan. Are you sure it's Cassius Clay? At the 1956 Melbourne Olympics James Boyd won the Light Heavyweight Gold Medal for the U.S..



Never mind. I believe it's Clay. Wonder why it mentions Melbourne on the back though.

Looks like its been cut from a paper and the Melbourne on the back must have been an add of some sort.
Has anyone seen one of these cards before???
