Description

Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling Signed 1973 Living Legends Lithograph This color 18" x 22" image was created by sports artist Bob Peak and captures the fury of the famed 1938 Yankee Stadium meeting between Max Schmeling, Hitler’s wunderkind, and Joe Louis, the great African-American champion. From its inception, the match transcended the sport to become a global event with obvious social and political implications. A worldwide audience listened, hoped and rejoiced as Louis avenged his 1936 defeat and reclaimed his world championship with a first-round knockout. Issued in 1973 as one of 12 lithographs offered in Sports Illustrated‘s "Living Legends" series, this one (359/1500) features splendid pencil signatures of both champions in the lower border. Each is big, bold, and dark ("9-10"). In NM condition (mild handling/storage wear), the artwork is sure to enhance every sports-related collection.
