Description

May 18, 1960 – U.S. Olympic Boxing Finals – Cassius Clay vs. Henry Cooper Light Heavyweight Trials Full Ticket (PSA Graded NM 7 )

This item has the honor of being part of the Glen O’Brien collection. O’Brien’s collection is an important and integral part of boxing history. For countless years, O’Brien collected memorabilia from his hero Muhammad Ali. He was considered a close personal friend of Ali and deemed his biggest fan by the legend. O’Brien purchased many items directly from Ali and did exclusive autograph signings with him.

This particular offering was part of the rare and unique archive O’Brien had and was discovered in a singular cardboard box. Together and complete from the early amateur career of the Greatest. O’Brien’s family attests that this magical gathering was part of the items purchased directly from Ali.

In 1960, the Olympic trials began in San Francisco at the Cow Palace. In his first bout, Cassius Clay defeated Henry Cooper to advance to the finals. This grand full ticket is from that first match-up held on May 18, 1960. It was the catalyst match for his final against Allen Hudson which led him eventually to a Rome Gold (medal). This ticket was encapsulated and graded PSA NM 7. One of the highest grades known to exist!
