1920's Harry Greb Training Used Punching Bag Display

1920's Harry Greb Training Used Punching Bag Display

The legendary pugilist from the early 20th century fought a recorded 303 times in his 13 year-career, against the best opposition the talent-rich 1910's & 20's could provide him, frequently squaring off against light-heavyweights and even heavyweights. He was a highly aggressive, very fast, swarming style of fighter who buried his opponents under a blizzard of punches. Greb was also a master at dirty fighting and had no qualms about employing all manner of dubious tactics, such as spinning his opponent and using the heel and laces of his gloves. The 'Pittsburg Wildcat' was also very durable, suffering no KO or TKO losses. This phenomenal display piece includes reproduction photographs and an authentic used punching bag. The large 31"x39" matted and framed display features a Rawlings Sporting Goods leather punching bag attributed to have been used by Greb in training, a sepia tone 8"x10" image of Greb and Tunney, a b&w 8"x10" image of Greb and G.Chip, and a large 14"x23" promotional photo of Greb with facsimile autograph. Punching bag originated from Greb's sister who lived in the Pittsburgh area and includes a letter of provenance from Joel Platt. The overall condition of the piece is EX.
