Inscribed picture postcard signed: "To Mr. Kingston/from/Jack O' Malley/Jan/33", in black ink. B/w, 3¼x5¼. Jack O'Malley won his first heavyweight title fight in 1931 against George Cook at Sydney Stadium, Australia. He defended his title against Cook for a second time later that year, winning again by points. However in July he was defeated by Alan Campbell in the Australasian Heavyweight match at Theatre Royal. Stripped of his belt, the champ went to seek the title again in 1932, but lost to Ambrose Palmer. Following this loss O'Malley went on an international career, seeking to reclaim his title in Europe. Coming home off of big wins, he tried one final time in 1933 for the Australian light heavyweight championship, but was knocked out by Pietro Spagnola in the 12th round. He retired with a record of 38-19-3. Signature in adequate contrast, but legible. Corners creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
