1910 T9 Kaufman PSA-4 ($275) and 1910 T9 Ketchel PSA-5 ($675) ppd.

From PSA - The 26 T9 subjects consist of 14 boxing Hall Of Famers including Jack Johnson (the first black heavyweight champion), James Jeffries (The "Great White Hope") who came out of retirement to beat Johnson and lost by a KO, Abe Attell (a main character involved in the 1919 fix of the World Series) and Stanley Ketchel (who was considered the greatest middleweight ever, amassing a 52-4 lifetime mark with 49 KO's). While training for a 1910 bout, Ketchel was murdered. He was shot at close range and died at the age of 24. These T9 cards provide a nice tribute to Ketchel who was killed during its distribution.
