Description

Commemorating a pair of unforgettable prize-fights from yesteryear, the presented lot features the 1973 “Schmeling vs. Louis” and the 1974 “Dempsey vs. Tunney” fight prints produced by Sports Illustrated. Measuring 22x18 apiece, each print displays beautiful artwork and vibrant colors with both examples hailing from limited edition runs of (#/1500). The pencil signatures grade (“9-10”) with the Louis (d.1981) and Schmeling (d.2005) examples signed using lighter graphite than the Dempsey (d.1983) and Tunney (d.1978) signatures. Minor to moderate moisture stains can be seen along the edges, though the Louis/Schmeling example is without a doubt the nicer of the pair. Accompanying this lot is a COA from James Spence Authentications.
