Description

Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis were intertwined for decades as not only two of the greatest heavyweight champions in history, but a favorite subject of debate as to who would have beaten whom. Dempsey, the champion from 1919-26, had the more explosive career while Louis the more distinguished one when he reigned from 1937-49. Dempsey vs. Louis stood out above the rest until Ali came along and joined the conversation.

Presented is an unofficial baseball autographed by both boxing greats, Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey. Both signed it on a side panel in blue  pen (“5-6” with Jack more pronounced). The ball itself shows toning from age and some discoloration in spots.

Authentication: JSA Full Letter

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players.  It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
