MAX SCHMELING
Black and white publicity photograph of Max Schmeling in a boxing ring in Nazi Germany hitting a weight bag.
Photograph signed: "Max Schmeling". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 7¼x7¾ (one surface). Pictured in a boxing ring in Nazi Germany with swastika flags hanging from the beams. Max Schmeling (1905-2005) became World Heavyweight Champion in 1930, when he defeated Jack Sharkey for the title vacated by Gene Tunney in 1928. In 1932, Sharkey won the title in a 15-round decision over Schmeling. Schmeling scored a twelfth round knockout of the previously undefeated Joe Louis in 1936. In a closely followed rematch at Yankee Stadium in 1938, Louis knocked out Schmeling in the first round. Despite Nazi efforts to promote him as a symbol of Aryan supremacy, Schmeling refused Hitler's personal request to join the Nazi party and secretly protected German Jews at great risk to himself. A Coca Cola executive since World War II, Schmeling became a close friend of Joe Louis and served as a pallbearer at Louis' funeral (1981). Lightly creased at upper right corner. Fine condition.
