Named by some historians as the single most important athlete in modern sports history, Jack Johnson was the first black man to win the World Heavyweight Championship. It was not simply his skin color which shattered convention, but also Johnson's brash personality, his willingness to defy tradition and popular opinion to be his own man, and the combination of power and technique which he used to defeat an entire generation of the division's best that made him a figure of incredible historic significance during the early twentieth century. The featured collectible has been graded VG+ 3.5 by SGC and presents as a stunning rendition of this ultra popular issue. Exceptional color as well as an interior image that is executed to a perfectly registered image as well as very minor chipping along the fragile faux wooden borders elevate this copy to a stunning presentation.
