Posted By: <b>CLAUDE</b><p>Picke this up recently and was advertised at a &quot;70's Ali card from Sweeden&quot;. It is blank-backed and features the Beatles. I researched a little and also found this video featuring Ali and the Beatles when he was training for the Liston fight whch I think was '65. The card pictures the Beatles in the same clothing they are wearing in the video..go about 2 min. into the video and you'll see what I mean. Does anyone have any info on this card? Could it be from '65? <br><br>video: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lAXBqU7840&amp;feature=related" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lAXBqU7840&amp;feature=related</a><br><br>-Claude<br><img src="http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c291/1966CUDA/UNGRADED/img032.jpg" alt="[linked image]"><br>

Posted By: <b>D. Bergin</b><p>Yes, I believe this card was issued sometime in the mid to late 60's. I believe it was part of a non-sports set of entertainers of the time period. It's also very similar in style to the many Floyd Patterson/Ingemar Johansson cards which were issued around the early 60's period.<br><br>It's fairly common and not a particularly popular card, even among Ali collectors.<br><br>
