JACK DEMPSEY
The heavyweight champion signs a note on a 5½x3½ post card bearing an illustration of the 1919 Dempsey-Willard fight.
Autograph Note signed: "Hi Judge/All good wishes/your friend/Jack Dempsey". Color, 5½x3½. Illustration by James Montgomery Flagg of the Dempsey-Willard Fight on July 4, 1919. Billed as the "Manassa Mauler" and the "toughest man ever to come out of the West," the 6-foot, 190-pound Dempsey met the 6-foot-6, 250-pound heavyweight champion Jess Willard on July 4, 1919, at Toledo, OH. Dempsey won on a 3rd-round knockout. During the next seven years, Dempsey defended his title only six times but made a lot of money in the process. His fight against Frenchman Georges Carpentier on July 2, 1921 produced boxing's first $1 million gate. He lost his title to Gene Tunney on September 23, 1926 in a ten-round decision after which he retired. Named the greatest fighter of the half-century in a 1950 Associated Press poll, he won 60 professional fights, 49 by knockout; lost 7, 1 by knockout; and fought 7 draws, 5 no-decisions, and 1 no-contest. Pencil and ink notes (unknown hand) at blank margins. Lightly worn at blank margins and corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
