1910 Johnson vs Jeffries Poster

1910 Johnson vs Jeffries Poster

On July 4, 1910 Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight title against Jim Jeffries, the former champion. Jeffries had retired as the undefeated champion after his last fight in 1904. Encouraged greatly by a racist public eager to get rid of Jack Johnson, Jeffries agreed to fight Johnson, 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. We feel that this poster was printed at a later time period than 1910. Not creased or torn. Bold color and clear images. Some minor browning of paper from aging. 10.5”x14”, very scarce.
