Lot # 1217 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Unique 1987 Muhammad Ali Signed Card

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $240

Unlined index card, inscribed and dated by Muhammad Ali, that also includes a small doodle by "The Greatest." The card, scripted in black marker, reads "To Joseph Branden/From/Muhammad Ali/After me there will never be another 3 time/king." Below the inscription is a small smiling face. Ali has dated the card "8-26-87." Unfortunately for the accuracy of Ali's inscription (which no doubt seemed reasonable at the time!), Evander Holyfield proved him wrong in 1997 when he duplicated Ali's feat of winning the World Heavyweight Championship for a third time. The card (5 x 3 inches) displays uneven toning from having once been matted, as well as tape and adhesive residue on the reverse. In Very Good condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $240
