MARCIANO, ROCKY-ARCHIE MOORE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH (1954-CONTRACT SIGNING)
On September 21, 1955 Rocky Marciano defended his Heavyweight Title for the last time defeating Archie Moore in Yankee Stadium.

This is an original, first generation photograph on heavy stock. Labeled on back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back. Not creased or torn. 8" x 10."
