TOMMY COLLINS
The late boxing great signs his name on a 5x3 card
Signature: "Tommy Collins," in blue ink, 5x3 card. Boxer Tommy Collins (1929-1996), although he never won a championship, became a national figure in his 1953 fight against lightweight champion Jimmy Carter when he was brutally beaten for four rounds straight with no referee intervention, only ending once one of Collins' corner coaches jumped in the ring to stop it. Dubbed as "The Boston Massacre," the fight spread nationwide controversy, leading to a major boxing reform--the three-knockdown rule, which is almost universally used today. Although Collins found no fault in the referee for not ending the fight, and he, himself, kept jovial spirits about the match overall, it was clear that after such a ruthless assault that Collins wouldn't fight the same again. Collins retired at 25 finishing with a 60-12 won-lost record with 43 knockouts. Toned. Pencil note (in unknown hand) on verso (no show-through). Otherwise, fine condition.
