Braddock earned the "Cinderella Man" sobriquet, bequeathed by Damon Runyon, when he came back off the docks to upset both John "Corn" Griffin and John Henry Lewis, and earn a Heavyweight Title fight against Max Baer. With Baer viewing the bout as a tune-up, Braddock completed his miraculous comeback to take the title, in a unanimous decision. Braddock inscribes the photo, making a pun as he writes, "To the Athletic Board of Michigang (sic) - A great body of men. Sincerest Best Wishes, Jimmy Braddock 10/29/36." Framed 14.5x17.5". A valuable, inspiring memento from a champion who wouldn't quit.
