Default Murderers' Row (boxing)

Has anyone tried collecting this group of fighters:

Charley Burley
Lloyd Marshall
Holman Williams
Herbert "Cocoa Kid" Lewis Hardwick
Jack Chase
Eddie Booker
Aaron Wade
Bert Lytell

I have an eBay search on Burley, but it never seems to hit on a period piece. Was wondering if anyone has anything representing any of them they'd like to share. Did any of them get a card? Thanks!

Most of these guys are pretty tough to find decent memorabilia on, for whatever reason. I'll start off with some Charley Burley. These are going to mostly be from my library of previously sold stuff, so likely nothing still in inventory.

The first couple are actually Burley vs. Lloyd Marshall, so you get a two for one.

Very, very tough stuff. Every time one of them make the HOF collectors have kittens trying to find something. Some of them have no career-contemporary ("CC") cards or only a card or two and they are obscure or rare.

Charley Burley: no known CC cards
Lloyd Marshall: 1940-70 Boxing News (UK)
Holman Williams: 1946-47 Propagandas Montiel (Cuba), plus a RPPC I have.
Herbert "Cocoa Kid" Lewis Hardwick: no known CC cards
Jack Chase: no known CC cards
Eddie Booker: no known CC cards
Aaron Wade: no known CC cards
Bert Lytell: no known CC cards

Absent cards, I go with publicity photos. Those do exist for the Cocoa Kid, Booker, Marshall and Burley. Perhaps for the others, I just haven't chased them.

Wow! Really enjoyed looking at everything. I'm glad I asked. Thanks Dave and Adam.

Adam, was hoping you would join in - I just read your SCD HOF article, so I figured you would know.

I do my best, John. The great thing about collecting boxing is that you can never know it all. Just pretend that you do

Thanks Dave! That looks like the Propagandas Montiel card of Holman Williams Adam mentions. And the photo with Joe Louis. The thread keeps getting better.

I have one more request for the experts that I think I will be able to tie in. Archie Moore talked up a lot of the boxers in this group via interview, etc.

What career-contemporary cards does Moore have? Google is showing a 1955 Topps hocus focus, but I thought there should be more since he was a champion.

Thanks!

A couple of Archie Moore Cards issued in Sweden I believe, around 1960. They are not technically "boxing cards", I suppose, as they are from his appearance in "Huckleberry Finn", but they were issued during his career.

John, if you go to Adam’s website he has a picture of the Archie Moore Hocus Focus under the catalog update section.
