Amazing early material: 1900s One Round Hogan by White, Ketchell-O’Brien montage, Red Riley cabinet signed to Al Grayber, gorgeous Buck Crouse portrait on board. Great images: eight Marciano & Louis (gorgeous Boston Record American poses and action shots), fantastic group of 12 printed in 1950s (Louis, Johnson, more), 1929 Leo Houck, Foreman dethrones Frazier (2), the ultimate Marciano portrait, Joe Louis by Sam Andre, Tiger-Griffith. Wire photos: 1930s Dempsey with Schmeling (2), ten 1949 Pep-Saddler action (nice!), five beautiful Joe Louis action shots (Ettore KO, 1937 Conn KO), 1940s Ray Robinson action and two with Joe Louis (6), Gene Tunney (4), Patterson-Liston (4).
