Default Just picked up my new favorite boxing card.

Surprisingly, she seems glad to be here.

Jerry, that's a very cool card. I've just discovered Mutoscope cards in the last year or so and would love to pick up a set one day.

I just picked up a boxing program from the first Zale-Graziano fight. I missed the auction for the second fight (I am a Graziano fan and would have loved to have gotten it) because "Rocky" wasn't in the title and that's how I did my search. Arghhh. But I love the cover of this program and am excited about getting it.

Not a new pickup per se, since I got it a few years ago, but had lost track of it until a few weeks ago, so I just had it graded and got back from PSA. Looks nicer than a 2, but minor creases and back staining make the grade correct.

Some Jim Jeffries material:

Ticket and raincheck from the Jeffries Barn boxing arena here in Burbank:



An invitation and two tickets [front and back shown] to a 1941 dinner of the California Boxing Commission honoring Jeffries:



Business card of the manager of Jeffries Barn, G.W. Aiton. Interestingly, Aiton was a former MLB player. He played in 10 games for the 1912 St. Louis Browns:



Two newly discovered Jeffries mail reply cards. I'd previously cataloged a card used to respond to mail about his 75th birthday:



Jeffries Barn letterhead signed by Aiton:



And a vintage snapshot of Rocky Marciano at training camp:



PS: I now have one of the Jeffries 75th birthday mail reply cards available for sale or trade. Only the 2nd one I've seen. Minor back damage from scrapbook removal

Default James Jeffries T218 Tolstoi

This beauty arrived today. Am glad to finally add him to my set after several missed opportunities over the years. I hope you can see in the picture that the back has a faint print outline (faded red/pink) that appears to mirror the front of image of the card. Notice that the left/right elbows are reversed. Is this likely a wet sheet transfer?

Splendid, Kenny! That Sullivan-Kilrain image was used on the Romeo y Julieta card:
