Default 1965 "Swedish Candy" Cassius Clay

I know this card is mislabeled. I've seen it in a few different threads that brought up how this card isn't correctly labeled. It's one of my favorite Ali cards that I just picked up raw and i would really like to get it slabbed with the correct data. If anyone has any information that I could pass along to psa .. I would greatly appreciate it. Here is a scan of the card I'm talking about. This isn't mine I just the used this scan from google.

I don't have an answer to your question, just another question.

Does anyone know why all the early clay/ali stuff is from Sweden?

The easy answer to that is Ingemar Johansson. There was a huge spike in boxing interest in Sweden during his prominence in the late 50's to mid 60's.

They even brought several American fighters over there for fight promotions.

Ali never fought there, but several of his various opponents did and he falls in the right time span.
