Original negative (4x4.75") from portrait sitting during time when Clay was converting to Ali, as well as from Christianity to Islam. From Lowell Riley, official photographer to Herbert Muhammad, who managed Ali. Unusual look as Ali is wearing a bow tie, and if you look closely it seems Ali, famous for his straight-faced kidding, is having a little fun as he faces forward and shoots his eyes hard to the side This is really a one-of-a-kind item because as an original negative it is capable of great enlargements without loss of quality or resolution. RARE because it came directly from Riley, and one doesn't usually see items like this from inside the Nation of Islam.
