1970s Teofilo Stevenson Autographed Fight Worn Gloves

1970s Teofilo Stevenson Autographed Fight Worn Gloves

One of the few existing pieces in private hands from the career of one of the greatest heavyweights. This 3-Time Olympic Gold Medal Winner from Cuba never fought professionally because of politics. He turned down millions of dollars to fight Muhammad Ali in both of their primes, hence the reason there is no Stevenson material out there. A diehard communist he does not believe in his memorabilia being sold, let alone the fact that he is cut off from the material world in Cuba. Offered here are one of the few pairs of fight worn gloves he saved form his 1970s prime. They show a good amount of use and are well broken in (no laces). Each is signed in silver paint pen, “Teofilo Stevenson 8-3-03” from the day he presented them to a friend who probably traded them for a chicken. The left glove displays a considerably nicer autograph; the signature on the right glove is slightly more faded. Obtained directly from the friend in Cuba.
