1938 Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling Wire Photo (PSA Type 1)
Out of stock
In one of the most anticipated rematches, Joe Louis downed Max Schmeling for the second time in June of 1938 . This 8×10 wire photo captures Louis flooring Schmeling. Louis knocked down Schmeling three times in the fight. We believe this was the final, lethal blow because on the verso a caption states “The fight is over.” The caption (rubber stamped) is dated June 24, 1938. A PSA/DNA sticker is affixed on the back. A full PSA/DNA letter states the wire photo is Type 1, first generation. The photo itself rates EX with handling wear, a few areas of paper loss and corner wear. A historic image taken from a monumental fight.
