GENE TUNNEY
Autograph of the retired World Heavyweight Champion in response to a request from his fans.
Signature: "Gene Tunney", 3¼x2½ card. Ink note (unknown hand) at upper margin: "Gene Tunney the retired champion of the fighting Game we will thank you very much if you will autograph your name". James Joseph "Gene" Tunney (1897-1978) captured the world heavyweight boxing crown by defeating Jack Dempsey in a unanimous 10-round decision (1926). He then won a 10-round rematch after coming back from a controversial long count (1927), before picking up one more easy purse and then retiring (1928). The highly literate and articulate Tunney served on the boards of several corporations. During WWII, he was director of athletics and fitness for the U.S. Navy. His son, John, was a U.S. Senator from California (1971-1977). Lightly soiled. Fine condition.
