This website and on-line catalog is dedicated to the sport of Boxing and the Memorabilia and Collectibles that go along with it. I hope to offer a wide range of vintage boxing collectibles concentrating mostly on pre-1970 vintage material.
I have an interest in many of the Black and African American fighters of the 19th and early 20th century and also with the Victorian era of Bare-Knuckle Boxing in England and America so I will be offering lots of Interesting Items in these categories.
Some of my favorite characters in boxing are Jack Johnson, Sam Langford, Joe Gans, Barbados Joe Walcott, Thomas Molineaux, Yankee Sullivan, Peter Jackson, Frank Slavin, Stanley Ketchel, Harry Greb, Sugar Ray Robinson, Henry Armstrong, Jake Lamotta, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Graziano, Larry Holmes, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Marlon Starling and many others too numerous to mention. Boxing as many of you know has had more interesting characters involved in it then all the other sports combined, due to the ego involved and the supreme sacrifice the participants must make to become the best at what they do. I hope to showcase some of these athletes on my website and at the same time help you to start or expand your collection of quality Boxing Memorabilia.
Boxing Collectibles are truly for the collector who would like own many truly unique and rare items without breaking their bank account. Compared to the World of Baseball and some other sports the speculators have not overrun the market of Boxing Collectibles yet. As an example, you can find vintage Jack Johnson and John L. Sullivan cards from the tobacco era for fractions of the price you would pay for a Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb card from the same era.
I hope you will bookmark my website as I will be in constant construction of it, updating the site as often as possible, so bookmark my page if you are in any way interested in Boxing Memorabilia. Please feel free to contact me for any reason whatsoever. I am an active buyer as well as a seller and would be happy to comment on any item you might have an interest in Selling, or even if your not interested in selling I will pass on any knowledge I have of a particular item.
Thanks for your time and interest and happy surfing.
