I completely forgot about Lelands until someone cold-called me Friday at the office. Too bad for whoever was the high bidder on this 11 x 14 Marciano piece before they called:



One of the few sets I'm collecting are the premiums from Slidewell/Slim Jim Bow Ties. The Marciano is #1 on my want list of course. I found a promo PC a few years ago.



Still no actual premium, though.

Slidewell used a few of the ads to create promotional broadsides (11 x 14) for specific fights, basically by enlarging the premiums and adding the fight details across the bottom. Tough as the set is, these are almost impossible. I've seen one with Archie Moore and this one:



I saw the Marciano in the catalog, opened the lot, and forgot all about it...until they called me.

The interesting thing is that the Marciano was a complete re-do of the premium, because the premium itself was issued pre-championship, as the PC shows. The Murphy was just a reuse of the premium art. Since all are National Studios credited and the Marciano poster image is a commonly used Marciano image found with many other products as well as on his training camp souvenirs, I have a feeling that National did the photos and created the art for the Slidewell/Slim Jim set.

I just love these career-issued Marciano promo pieces.

2016 Vegas Outlaws Don King. The Tyson quote at the bottom makes this card a classic. I have an extra so I may send it to King for a TTM signature...

1960s Cinzano promotional card, signed by Nino Benvenuti:



For those who don't know, Cinzano is booze.

Here is an interesting study in PSA anomalies. This is the 1966 DC Hornet supplement, which contains athletes of various stripes from the UK, plus Ali:



Is it a card or a cut-out? Well, somebody somehow convinced PSA to grade these as cards. Here is one I have for sale right now:



Through the magic of TPG blessing it is now a highly collectable card. Needless to say, I bought the full item to get this for my type collection:



And I have a bunch of soccer teams and players left to resell.

Very interesting pick-up Adam. Helps somewhat that it's blank back, I guess.

This came from Argentina after a long, long journey from Buenos Aires to NYC back to Buenos Aires, back to NYC then to Cali. That's nearly 20,000 miles.



It is typical of South American chocolate album sets of the era, printed on thin stock, 2.25" tall 1.5" wide. Photoengraved. Only one I've ever seen.

Also picked up this Andre Ward signed RC:

Adam, that Dempsey looks just like the c. 1928 Salem/Josetti/Jasmatzi card issued in Germany.

Makes sense with the large number of German immigrants moving to Argentina during the 1st half of the 20th century.
