1910 Jack Johnson vs. James Jeffries Postcard and Train Schedule

1910 Jack Johnson vs. James Jeffries Postcard and Train Schedule

On July 4, 1910, Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight title against Jim Jeffries, the former champion. Jeffries had retired undefeated champion after his last fight in 1904 but spurred on by a racist public eager to get rid of Jack Johnson, Jeffries agreed to the fight. But age and an almost six-year layoff, coupled with Johnson's great skill and youth, proved to be too much. Jeffries was easily defeated in a one-sided match. Offered here are an original train schedule for leaving Reno after the fight and a used postcard in the configuration of the ticket used for the fight. The 2 1/2" x 6" postcard shows heavy wear and soiling and is dated 1910. The four-page train schedule issued by Southern Pacific has edge tears. VG.
