Name: HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS VINTAGE SIGNED POSTER (1977-ALI, LOUIS, ETC.)
History: On May 20, 1977 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, an event was held to honor the heavyweight champions. Sports artist LeRoy Neiman was commissioned to produce a poster which we offer here. It has been boldly signed in ink on the upper portions by the then-heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali (who dated his signature), Joe Louis, Max Schmeling, Jack Sharkey, Ingemar Johansson, Floyd Patterson and Jimmy Ellis. Vintage signatures of all.
Full description: The poster itself is cardboard and has been mounted. 23" x 34.5". Generally clean with no staining. Not creased or torn. Color remains sharp. Terrific contrast with the bold, ink signatures including Muhammad Ali as champion. A unique, rare offering of some of the best heavyweights to enter the ring.
Size: 23 x 34 1/2
