On July 4, 1910 Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight title against Jim Jeffries, the former champion. Jeffries had retired undefeated champion after his last fight in 1904. Encouraged greatly by a racist public eager to get rid of Jack Johnson, Jeffries agreed to fight Johnson, but age and an almost six year lay-off, coupled with Johnson's great skill and youth proved to be too much. Jeffries was easily defeated in a one sided match. Presented here is an original real photo postcard which depicts Jeffries as he looked in 1904 and how he looked in 1910. This is an original, dual image, real photo postcard. Bold, clear image. Stain in upper left corner, otherwise clean front and back. Unused. Not creased or torn. Minor corner wear. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2."
