Rare and wonderfully evocative Cuban fight posters from the 1940s, from such venues as the Palacio de los Deportes and Arena Nazario. The names of the fighters may not ring a bell, but they were the country's best pugs in a sport that captivated the natives, then and now. Among these were featherweight Miguel Acevedo who battled Dominican champ El Barquerito. Another intriguing match up: Baby Juancito vs. Kid 22-22." Best of all, the price to get in was a mere 60 cents. Three posters are 14 x 22", with green or red lettering and pink-tined images of the fighters, one with black lettering on green paper; a fourth is 11.25 x 14" and also black on green. Understandable wear and mild border foxing, and folds on a couple, but a real treat for fight "fanaticos."
