Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>A very, very rare card...issued in the late 1920s. Oh Boy Gum was a Goudey product, so this makes it the first Goudey boxing issue. <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1192762518.JPG"> <br /><br />Now compare it to this Exhibit card of Mix and Newsboy Brown; the background is the same place, I think. Dempsey and other boxers were in Hollywood in the 1920s making bad serials, partying and generally living it up. <br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1192762783.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Steve Murray</b><p>I thought there was something special about that Dempsey card given what you offered the seller. Nice pickup at significantly less than your refused offer. <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>
