Description

These are two dated ticket stubs and one parking pass to The Long Count heavyweight fight between Jack Dempsey and Jack Tunney in Chicago on Sept. 22, 1927, one of the most famous and controversial events in professional sports history. Given their age, these remnants are in remarkable condition. The ticket stubs measure 2 3/4″ x 3″ inches. One grades in EX condition with a light corner crease, the other is in VG condition with two creases at the lower left corner. At 3″ x 3 1/4″, the parking pass is in VG condition with a 2″ diagonal tear that begins at the lower bottom. At the top, “Sept. 1927” is written in black ink. While the $10 ticket price was exorbitant at the time, it is an indicative of the immense interest that the epic rematch generated around the country. Dempsey was behind on points in the seventh round when he knocked Tunney down with a left hook to the chin then followed with several more punches. Dempsey momentarily forgot a new rule that required a boxer to go to a neutral corner in this situation, however, which delayed the countdown and allowed Tunney about five additional seconds to recover. Tunney got to his feet at the count of nine, held on the rest of the way and retained his title in a unanimous decision.
