Joe Louis fought Max Schmeling for the second time on June 22, 1938, at Yankee Stadium. Louis had been stopped by Schmeling in their first fight in 1936, marking the first time Louis had felt the sting of defeat. In this celebrated second fight, Louis knocked Schmeling out in the first round to retain the World Heavyweight Title. This was one of the most historic fights in boxing history, fought against the backdrop of the rise of Hitler and Nazi Germany and the looming second World War. Offered here is an original full, unused ticket for this fight, picturing both fighters and it has raised lettering. Tiny crease in lower left corner but not torn, with minor edge, surface and corner wear. It measures 2.5x5.5", a fine example.
