1923 W580 Hand-Cut Jack Johnson PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - 1 of 1- Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $356

Graded NM-MT+ 8.5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Jack Johnson from the 1923 W580 strip-card issue. Jack Johnson was crowned the first African-American Heavyweight Champion in history when he defeated Tommy Burns in 1908. His dominance in the ring and his larger-than-life personality made him one of the greatest stars in the history of boxing or any sport. The offered W580 strip card of Jack Johnson is virtually flawless: it is perfectly clean both front and back, with four sharp corners, perfect edges (hand-cut), and a crisp image. This outstanding example would be a worthy addition to any world-class Jack Johnson or boxing-card collection. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $356
