It is Billy Madden. I also have one just like it. Same photo used in his SF Hess issue I believe but I’ll have to check when I get back home but definitely not apart of the N332 issue.

When I originally acquired mine I thought maybe it was trimmed down from a larger piece but when as I inspected it it seemed like it was issued in that size and was not trimmed. I still had my doubts though... but now that a second has been found its becoming more interesting as to how this may have been issued. I believe I have a scan of mine on my computer and will add it in the next couple of days...

No but if they pirated the image I’d not be surprised to see something like that.

Looks like Brent has somewhat solved the mystery.

Thanks for the help on this one, Brent. Hope you are well. I will never forget that about 10 yrs ago you offered me some toothpaste as I had left mine at home when at the National. I am indebted.

Wow! Great to see a boxing topic on the board - there is also a non sports book out there showing some or similar boxing issues that tell about the size and issues as some non sports issues have a lot of boxers mixed in - boxing gets hidden some times - and just takes time to figure it out
