MAX SCHMELING

The professional boxer and World Heavyweight Champion in 1930 signs this printed card in German, in black felt tip

Printed Letter Signed In Ink: "Max Schmeling" in black felt tip. 7x4½. 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. At Yankee Stadium in 1936, Schmeling scored a twelfth round knockout of the previously undefeated Joe Louis. 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 after World War II, Schmeling became a close friend of Joe Louis and served as a pallbearer at Louis' funeral (1981). Edges frayed. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
