Unusual and early American vaudeville poster from circa 1900, starring legendary heavyweight James Jeffries. The poster mentions "For the edification of lovers of athletic sports, immediately after the performance a physical culture demonstration will be given by James L. Jeffries and JOE KENNEDY." The wording says American, so this must be right before his European tour in 1900. Interesting for a boxer to perform vaudeville, but speaks to Jeffries' notoriety. The poster measures 11x14" and is folded down the center, otherwise in EX-MT condition.
