Vintage The Ring Boxing Magazine June 1945 Jack Dempsey Vs Luis Angel Firpo Bout For Sale
I am thrilled to bring to this piece of boxing history. I am a huge fan of the old fighters such as Sonny Liston, Rocky Marciano and yes Jack Dempsey. So I was fortunate to get my hands on this dandy little ditty.A copy of The Ring June edition from...wait for it....1945! It always boggles me how these things survive. But it's here and in pretty good shape. The cover story deatures Jack Dempsey getting knocked through the ropes in his historic battle with Luis Angel Firpo, the Wild Bull of the Pampas. It also encourages the reader to "Buy United States War Bonds and Stamps".The cover shows obvious wear due to its age but, in my humble opinion, is in surprisingly good shape. The colors are still bright and the photo is clearly visible. And best of all there is no WRITING on the cover! I hate that!!S Some spine damage, missing a bit of paper at the corners. Still flat with no major defects.The back cover is in shockingly good shape! Oh how I wish this was the front cover, lol! Featuring good 'ol Charles Atlas. Remember those ads?The inside shows some foxing but not terrible. I VERY carefully looked at a few pages to take some pictures and it seems to be complete. Very fragile of course and the lower staple is hanging on to the middle pages by a thread but they are still there!This baby is rare. Boxing fans don't miss this chance who knows when you might see one again. Or I come to my senses and keep it myself! I kid! I kid!For those who decide to offer and those who don't please enjoy taking a look at one of, if not the, greatest fighters of all time. Even if the photo does not exactly show his best moment!
