Peter Jackson Signed Boxing Cabinet Card

Peter Jackson Signed Boxing Cabinet Card

Peter Jackson was born on the island of St. Croix, in the Danish West Indies, in 1861. He was a natural athlete who developed a marvelous physique by competing in various sports. Jackson began his boxing career in 1882 in Australia and soon perfected his ring craft. He combined a smooth style with lightning fast combination, and an ability to hit hard with either hand. Jackson fought often and was soon matched against the top heavyweights of his day, men like Joe McAuliffe, Patsy Cardiff, Jem Smith, Frank Slavin and Jim Corbett. He defeated them all, with the exception of Corbett, with whom he drew after sixty-one rounds. The greatest opponent Jackson faced, however, was social prejudice. Society mandated that John L. Sullivan, who was the reigning Champion at the time, not give Jackson or any other black fighter a shot at the Heavyweight crown. Denied his shot at the title, Jackson never got the opportunity he so richly deserved, but is still remembered as the great fighter he was. Offered here is an incredibly rare signed cabinet card of Peter Jackson. The cabinet card is 4 ? x 6 ? and pictures Jackson in the prime of his career in full fight pose. A magnificent cabinet card by Sarony Studios. This card has been boldly signed on the reverse in fountain pen ink. Front of card appears EX with small chip at the bottom right corner and stamping on the back that reads, "From The Albert Davis Collection." "Peter Jackson" also written on the back in pencil. This is the only signature of the great Peter Jackson we have offered in public sale.
