Add Max Bid
Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay. Named after white Kentucky abolitionist Cassius M. Clay, Ali’s amateur career consisted of six Kentucky Golden Glove titles, two National Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) championships, two National Golden Glove crowns, and the Gold Medal in the light heavyweight division in the 1960 Summer Olympics. On February 25, 1964 the man then known as Cassius waged his first fight against Sonny Liston for the heavyweight championship. The heavy underdog, Clay, defeated Liston, and shortly after, changed his name and joined the Nation of Islam. Ali no longer would be referred to as “Cassius”, and as a result, very few autographs designated as such has surfaced in the hobby.
Offered is an actual Cassius Clay signed cut (1.25″ x 3.5″) from the era that is part of a larger display showcasing the Liston fight via photo. Clay signed the parchment in perfect blue pen on the dotted line (“10”). The display measures 16×24.
