Over the past half century no sports figure has been more recognizable worldwide than Muhammad Ali. Remembered for the great moments in the ring, revered for the courage and conviction he has shown as a man. He is a man who was once feared as a radical and now loved as one of the most important members of the world community. During Ali's tenure as a fighter, he was certainly one of the most visible and public figures to ever enter a prize ring. He was photographed by most of the world's leading photographers. No photographer surpassed the excellence of Neil Leifer. The photography of Neil Leifer is recognized and appreciated worldwide and Muhammad Ali was his finest subject. Lelands is proud to offer a set of five original first generation photos of Muhammad Ali which were taken by Neil Leifer. Each photo is numbered and signed on the mount by Neil Leifer and comes with an LOA from Neil Leifer. Each photo is also signed on the mount by Muhammad Ali. The Ali autographs were obtained by noted author Thomas Hauser, writer of the book, Muhanmmad Ali: His Life and Times. Hauser collaborated with Neil Leifer on the book about Muhammad Ali, Memories.
