Kid Gavilan was born on January 6, 1926 in Camaguey, Cuba. He won the World Welterweight Title on May 18, 1951 in a bout with Johnny Bratton. He retired on September 11, 1958 with a final record of 107-30-6 with 28 KO's. Presented here is a signed cut. Kid Gavilan has boldly signed both sides of this 3" x 5" index card in blue ink. On the unlined side he has inscribed it, "Good Luck Kid Gavilan." On the other side he has inscribed it, "To John L. Smith Always Yours Kid Gavilan." There is some minor soiling on both sides, not affecting the signature. No rips or tears.
