Default Let's See Some Awesome Boxing Cards!

One per day per poster; let's keep it going as a virtual card show. I will start with the granddaddy of them all:



Pre-1870 John C. Heenan CDV by Fredricks. This is the earliest verifiable boxing card. Until the late 1850's the photographic technology did not permit commercial scale, affordable production of photographs. Fredricks was one of the first to make albumen images, a skill he learned in France and brought to the States in 1855. By the time this card was issued as part of his commercially produced "Specialite" series of famous personages, Fredricks owned a large studio and gallery in New York City. His work is featured in a number of museum collections, including the Smithsonian.

Have one card left to complete the Ringside set. While Joe Louis is a close 2nd, this has to be my favorite:

Here to represent Canada is another seldom seen card. This one of Joe Choyinski/Choynski issued in 1910 by Robertson Candy Co. I’m still unsure about the surname!

in my eyes, these and the T220 Silver's are the most aesthetically pleasing boxing cards issued yet. Here's Peerless Jim/Jem

Nice JJ RC, Herb.

I'm not a big Turkey Red collector but they are great looking cards. As long as we're talking cabinets, here are two HOFers in the Pioneer Facial Hair category:



Paddy Ryan, 2020 IBHOF, Sarony cabinet



Joe Goss, 2003 IBHOF, Wood cabinet
