Ingemar Johansson signs a program for the Rockland County Republican Committee Annual Dinner.
Program signed: "6-4-60/Best wishes/Ingemar Johansson", 2p, 8½x11. Rockland County Republican Committee Annual Dinner, Saturday, June 4, 1960. In 1952, Swedish boxer Ingemar Johansson (1932-2009) competed in the Olympic Games in Helsinki, Finland. Thirty years later, Johansson, who had been disqualified for what judges deemed a tepid performance, was presented with the Silver medal by the International Olympic Committee. In 1959, Johansson became the first Swede and last European to win the World Heavyweight Championship, defeating Floyd Patterson with a KO in the third round. Johansson, who fought 28 bouts during his professional career, had a record of 26 wins (17 by KO, 8 decisions and one win by foul) and two losses (both by KOs), and remains a hero in his native country. Ink note (unknown hand) at upper margin. Lightly soiled on cover, else fine condition.
