Posted By: <b>howard</b><p>Hi folks,<br /><br />Can anybody post cards or photos of Frankie Terranova? He was active as a lightweight in the 30's and 40's mostly in New York. I was friends w/him 15-20 years ago when he was living out his last few years in the apartment building I worked in. A great guy and fine story teller, even in his dotage (which was probably accelerated by the many beatings he took in the ring).<br /><br />Thanks,<br /><br />Howard<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>boxingcardman</b><p>Lou Terranova, yes. Was Frankie ranked? If not the odds of there being a card are very slim.<br><br>Sic Gorgiamus Allos Subjectatos Nunc

Posted By: <b>howard</b><p>Thanks, Boxingcardman. No, Frankie was never ranked. He was, more or less, a tomato can his entire career losing a decent amount more than he won. His younger brother, Phil, was frequently ranked though and he even beat Sandy Sadler once. Too bad you had to be good to have a card. I'm used to collecting baseball cards where even the scrubbiest of scrubs is likely to have at least one.<br /><br />Thanks for the link, Aaron. That's only the second studio photo I've seen of Frankie. The other was owned by him and showed him later in his career a little more beaten up.<br /><br />Howard<br /><br />
