Description

Amongst the all-time greats African boxers, Dick Tiger (d.1971) fought and defeated the likes of Terry Downes, Joey Giardello, Gene Fullmer, Rubin Carter and Jose Torres. The four-time champion, who succumbed to liver cancer at the age of 42, is clearly pictured on this period postcard which was signed in blue ball-point reading Sincerely, Dick Tiger. Despite an album-ailment on the reverse, the postcard has survived in otherwise superb condition already slabbed in an SGC/JSA “Authentic” holder. An impressive piece likely missing from most boxing collections.
