1959-2002 Hall of Famer and Stars Boxing Rookie-Card Collection (117)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For -

Extremely diverse collection of 117 different high-quality boxing items (113 cards, 2 magazines, 2 magazine covers) from thirty different issues, dating from 1959 to 2002, all graded and encapsulated by SGC (unless otherwise noted). The collection is comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers and stars and was assembled one card (or item) at a time over a period of many years by a very dedicated, extremely advanced collector whose main interest was rookie cards (from all sports), with a primary focus on completeness, properly defining what cards represent each player's rookie card, condition, and overall eye appeal. This is an extremely significant ultra high-grade rookie boxing-card collection that cost a small fortune to assemble, put together by a world-class collector whose efforts we believe will someday be looked at as far ahead of his time. The collection consists of the following: 1) 1959 Rekord Journal (1 complete magazine): Patterson and Johansson on cover. 2) 1960 Hemmet (1 card): earliest appearance of Cassius Clay on a trade card (Vg). 3) 1962 Rekord Journal (2 magazine covers and 1 complete magazine): very early appearances of Cassius Clay and Sonny Liston on the two front covers, and the full magazine has Joey Brown on the cover. 4) 1966 Campioni Dello Sport (5 cards): #374 Ortiz (EX/NM 80), 378 Harada (EX/NM 80), 379 Saldivar (EX 60), 382 Tiger (EX 60), and 385 Terrell (EX/NM 80). 5) 1966 Panini (3 cards): #347 Benvenuti (EX/NM 80), 373 Griffith (NM 84), and 391 Liston (VG/EX 50). 6) 1967 Campioni Dello Sport (1 card): #459 Cokes (VG 40). 7) 1967-1968 Panini (1 card): #464 Frazier (EX 60). 8) 1968-1969 Panini (1 card): #329 Cruz (VG/EX 50). 9) 1969-70 Panini (2 cards): #353 Foster (NM+ 86) and 362 Napoles (NM 84). 10) 1970-1971 Panini (1 card): #279 Olivares (NM/MT+ 92). 11) 1971 Panini (1 card): #164 Papp (VG/EX 50). 12) 1973-1974 Panini (5 cards): #289 Foreman (PSA NM-MT 8), 291 Monzon (EX/NM 80), 299 Napoles (NM 84), 301 Duran (NM/MT 88), and 310 Jofre (MINT 96). 13) 1976 Panini (1 card): #180 Spinks (NM 84). 14) 1977-1979 Sportscaster (8 cards): #16-15 Tate (MINT 96), 22-09 Leonard (NM/MT 88), 45-12 Holmes (NM/MT 88), 45-15 Stracey (NM/MT 88), 50-09 Minter (VG/EX 50), 51-17 Monzon/Valdes (MINT 96), 55-22 Corro (NM/MT 88), and 63-22 Valdes (MINT 96). 15) 1982 Panini (9 cards): #66 Holmes (MINT 96), 67 Leonard (MINT 96), 68 Hagler (NM/MT 88), 71 Hearns (NM/MT 88), 72 Watt (MINT 96), 73 Benitez (NM 84), 78 Sanchez (MINT 96), 79 Gomez (GEM 98), and 80 Muhammad (MINT 96). 16) 1986 Brown's (9 cards): #17 McGirt (NM/MT 88), 25 Pendleton (NM/MT 88), 30 Peltz (NM 84), 61 Tate (NM+ 86), 62 Holyfield (NM/MT 88), 66 Whitaker (EX/NM 80), 86 Arcel (NM/MT 88), 88 Smith (NM+ 86), and 102 Gamache (NM/MT 88). 17) 1986 Panini (7 cards): #145 Curry (EX 60), 146 Spinks (EX/NM 80), 147 Bramble (NM 84), 152 Honeyghan (EX/NM 80), 153 Tyson (VG 40), 165 Nelson (GEM 98), and 171 Fenech (MINT 96). 18) 1987 Panini (2 cards): #164 Chavez (EX/NM 80) and 166 Starling (GEM 98). 19) 1988 Brown's (3 cards): #165 McCall (NM/MT 88), 169 O'Grady (NM/MT 88), and 181 Coetzee (NM+ 86). 20) 1990 Brown's (10 cards): #6 Bowe (NM/MT 88), 11 Brown (NM/MT+ 92), 12 Camacho (NM/MT+ 92), 14 Carbajal (NM/MT+ 92), 17 Curry (MINT 96), 52 Nunn (NM/MT 88), 58 Rosario (NM/MT 88), 60 Ruelas (NM/MT 88), 62 Seldon (NM/MT+ 92), and 71 Witherspoon (VG 40). 21) 1991 AW Sports (7 cards): #2 Antuofermo (NM/MT 88), 15 Arguello (NM/MT 88), 26 Mancini (MINT 96), 30 Page (MINT 96), 32 Qawi (NM/MT+ 92), 43 Weaver (MINT 96), and 111 McGuigan (GEM 98). 22) 1991 Kayo (11 cards): #002 Duva (MINT 96), 004 Dundee (MINT 96), 005 Stewart (NM/MT 88), 020 Norris (MINT 96)l, 116 Jones (MINT 96), 126 Sulaiman (GEM 98), 168 Arum (NM/MT+ 92), 174 D'Amato (MINT 96), 180 Toney (MINT 96), 198 Mercante (MINT 96), and 249 Benton (MINT 96). 23) 1991 Ringlords (5 cards): #3 Douglas (MINT 96), 10 Lewis (PSA GEM MT 10), 12 Dokes (MINT 96), 14 Moorer (NM/MT+ 92), and 23 McCallum (NM/MT+ 92). 24) 1992 Impel Olympicards (1 card): #23 De La Hoya (PSA GEM MT 10). 25) 1993 Brown's (2 cards): #19 Forrest (MINT 96) and 74 Tubbs (NM/MT+ 92). 26) 1996 Ringside (2 cards): #37 Trinidad (GEM 98) and 43 Gonzales (MINT 96). 27) 1997 Brown's (3 cards): #39 Johnston (GEM 98), 45 Judah (GEM 98), and Mayweather (MINT 96). 28) 1999 Brown's (3 cards): #16 Chavez (MINT 96), 31 Hopkins (NM/MT 88), and 49 Mosley (MINT 96). 29) 2001 Brown's (8 cards): #8 Taylor (MINT 96), 23 Castillo (MINT 96), 24 Corrales (NM/MT 88), 26 Diaz (NM/MT 88), 53 Klitschko (MINT 96), 54 Klitschko (NM/MT+ 92), 62 Maskaev (MINT 96), and 80 Spadafora (NM/MT 88). 30) 2002 Brown's (1 card): #55 Sugar (MINT 96).
