Does anyone here have the Mathewson or “Three Finger” Brown from this series?
No, but I have the George Dixon:



Super-tough issue; I don't recall the last time I saw one offered for sale. That's a really nice pick-up.

I got this one today, a RPPC of Holman Williams:




Williams was part of a group of African-American fighters in the 147# and 160# classes (welter and middle) nicknamed "Murderers' Row": Charley Burley, Lloyd Marshall, Williams, The Cocoa Kid, Jack Chase, Eddie Booker, Aaron Wade and Bert Lytell. The champs of the time refused to fight them, so they ended up fighting each other dozens of times (62 in all). Five of them have been elected to the HOF so far: Burley, Marshall, Williams, Cocoa Kid and Booker, and collecting them for a HOF set is a real challenge. Booker, Burley and the Cocoa Kid have no known cards; I had to settle for career-issued photos. Marshall appears in the 1940-70 Boxing News set from the UK. Williams has a 1947 Montiel card. This postcard is the first I've ever seen for Williams. It is an AZO four squares back (1924-49 per Playle's). The weight notation and format suggests that this was a self-issued postcard and it dates to his days in the early 1930s when he fought as a lightweight.

Thanks Adam (and Derek & Leon)! I’ve seen your posts of the Dixon previously, really cool. I was hoping one or more Net54ers might have the Brown or Mathewson. Guess I’ll be searching for those for a long time as well!
