Description

Offered is a fantastic duo of Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney boxing relics. The highlight piece is the original 1926 fight ticket from their epic bout in Philadelphia on September 23, 1926. Tunney won the fight by unanimous decision in ten rounds setting up the rematch a year later. The ticket is in EX condition with mildly rounded corners and two punch holes. The ticket does not feature row or seat assignments and is most likely a standing room or fight day ticket. The 7x9" photograph shows the two great pugilists in street clothes and is dated on the reverse, August 12, 1926. The image is in EX-MT condition with cropped corners.
