Autographs of this early 20th century prizefighter champion are extremely rare and this is a prime example of Robert Fitzsimmons's signature, dated July 27, 1900. His wife also has signed the paper written at Bergin Beach. The signature is written in black ink with a steel tip pen and is completely legible, remarkable for a signed document of this age. The lot also comes with an 8" x 10” photograph of Fitzsimmons in a fighter stance. The image is VG or better with only minor creasing, mostly around the edges, and good tonal qualities. This is a truly special find and ideal for a collector of vintage turn of the 20th century boxing memorabilia.
