Frank Slavin Framed Signed Letter w/Cabinet Photo (PSA)

Frank Slavin Framed Signed Letter w/Cabinet Photo (PSA)

Frank Slavin, also known as "Paddy" Slavin, was an Australian heavyweight boxer. He was a pioneer of prizefighting in his country, fighting under the tutelage of Larry Foley. One of Slavin's first bouts was against Bob Fitzsimmons, who later became the world's first triple champion. Slavin established himself as one of the best heavyweights of his time by defeating then unbeaten New Zealand champion Harry Laing and eventually capturing the Australian Heavyweight Championship.From Frank Slavin comes this interesting hand-signed letter. Addressed to Mr. Tuohey, Slavin thanks him for the previous "breezy" letter that he had sent and promised to respond more thoroughly in the future. The main focus of this letter was Slavin's autobiography. He had recently begun working on it and was asking Tuohey if he would help. Apparently, Tuohey had a nice collection of original boxing photographs and would like to use some in his autobiography/project. Nicely framed and matted, this letter is accompanied by an equally impressive cabinet photo of Slavin nicely dressed with his beautiful mustache. 22x25" overall. PSA LOA.
