Product Description

Muhammad Ali Autograph Signed Sonny Liston Fight Photo
This color photo has been signed by Muhammad Ali in blue felt tip pen. The photo, about 9" x 11", is a page from the book "Muhammad Ali- A Portrait In Words And Photographs" by Wilfrid Sheed. The signature was obtained at the Essex House Hotel in New York by veteran collector John Morgan, believed to be in 1985. This iconic photo, showing Ali knocking out Sonny Liston in the first minute of their May 25 1965 fight, is one of the most famous images in sports history. Other than a slightly jagged left edge where the page had been ripped from the book, the photo is in excellent shape. The black and white photo shown is the reverse side of the page.
