FREDDIE "FEARLESS FREDDIE" MILLS
Small 3½x5½ b/w photo of British light-heavyweight boxer Freddie Mills in trunks and a fighting stance, signed "Best of Luck" by him in blue ink
Inscribed photograph signed "TO MISS YOUNG/Best of Luck/Freddie Mills" in blue ink. Pencil notations in unknown hand and photo credit stamp in purple ink on verso. B/w, 3½x5½, printed on cardstock. Mills (1919-1965) was a British light-heavyweight boxer and World Light Heavyweight champion from 1942 to 1950. He was also Commonwealth and British Boxing Board of Control light heavyweight champion (1942, relinquished) and European Boxing Union light heavyweight champ (1947-1949). Mills had a career record of 76 wins, 18 losses and 7 draws, with 49 wins and 7 losses to knockout, between 1936 and 1950. After retiring, he opened a nightclub in the Soho section of London, England, United Kingdom, and he became friends with the Kray brothers, identical twin boxers and gangsters. Mills died on July 24, 1965 from a gunshot wound to the head. His death was ruled a suicide, although several wild conspiracy theories about his death sprang up, including one that he was "Jack the Stripper", a serial killer responsible for killing at least six prostitutes in 1964 and 1965. Lightly worn at edges. Signature has smeared lightly but is legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
