1905 Jack Johnson /Burns Glass Boxing Slides

Lot 0004 Details

Description
On Dec. 26, 1905, Jack Johnson took the heavyweight title from Champion Tommy Burns by a 14th round KO. He chased Burns halfway around the world to finally get a chance to fight for the title. Other jurisdictions did not want to allow the possibility of a black champion and would not sanction the contest. This lot consists of 14 original glass slides of that historic bout, showing both fighters. They measure 3" x 3" and are in Near Excellent condition with two having a crack and one having a chipped corner. The images appear to be crystal clear and these survivors would produce dramatic images of the fight. .
