1930's Kid Chocolate Vintage Signed Photographs Lot of 4 Including one to Harry Greb

1930's Kid Chocolate Vintage Signed Photographs Lot of 4 Including one to Harry Greb

Blessed with exceptional boxing prowess and incredible charisma, Kid Chocolate (aka The Cuban Bon Bon) was a larger than life personality during the decade of the 1930's, both in the U.S. and his home country of Cuba.
 
On offer here are four Kid Chocolate 1930's photographs, each of which is inscribed and signed in bold black fountain pen. Three measure 8x5" and one measures 6.75x4.25". Three have a "Bryant, N.Y." credit. Three are glossy promotional images. Two are VG with some creases, chipping, and pinholes.
 
Best of all is the mat surface studio portrait which is inscribed & signed "To my friend Harry Greb sincerely Eligio Sardinas Kid Chocolate" in 9/10 steel-tip black fountain pen. This photo is in superb condition (except for a tiny pinhole away from the subject and some very light toning). The fact that the photo is from one champion to another and that Kid signs both his legal name and nickname, make this a one-one-a-kind offering.
