Description

The vintage boxing aficionado will appreciate the opportunity to secure this 1948 Leaf Boxing complete set of (49) cards on an approximately 17x19 uncut sheet. This printing press survivor displays seven rows of seven cards that comprise the edition. Although this colorful cardboard reveals significant wear that includes paper removal which spans 6 along with moderate creasing, many key cards are unaffected by any significant flaws. Keys on this sheet include #1 Dempsey, #5 Schmeling, #9 Jeffries, #17 Johnson, #48 Louis, #55 Corbett, #64 Robinson, #73 Tunney and #102 LaMotta. Of the noted cards, only #1 Dempsey, #5 Schmeling, #48 Louis, #101 Sullivan and #102 LaMotta (significant paper loss) reveal any obtrusive damage. A fine piece that is easily suited for framing and display.
