Beautiful, black velvet hooded robe with gold piping once draped Carter's broad shoulders on his way into and out of the ring. Free of ornamentation on the front, the reverse has yellow felt letters spelling "Rubin Carter" which encircle a black panther patch. The original gold rope belt still hangs between the loop holes and only a single black button was applied to the center front neckline. Without additional labelings or tags from the manufacturer, it was most likely custom made and appears to be a size "Large".
