The GOAT for sure!
Here are tickets from two of his biggest wins -- over Sonny Liston in 1964 and Superman in 1978 -- along with one of the five embossed cards produced by Metallic Impressions in 1993 ...

A couple of tougher ones of mine - the Lampo got robbed with just being given a 3. No issues other than the corner stain.

Nice comic! I like items like that.

I know they fought, but I think Ali and Superman were friends

Recent REA pick up

Well Bob, I guess you could chop that up and have 7 cards that contain Ali's signature. Panini would probably pay a premium for that!

big-six 02-05-2021 03:33 PM

David, I told my wife that I had to save this unique piece from someone cracking the case open and making 7 cut signatures framed with photos...haha
It will stay in one piece as long as I own it.

What is the story for having Ali sign his name 7 times?

big-six 02-05-2021 07:52 PM

Jack, Great question Iím just guessing here but with everyone wanting Aliís signature I think it was just easier and quicker for him to sign several like this and let the Teacher/ Organizers? Cut them for the students/kids. This one survived the scissors.

Late to the party, but just found my Muhammed Ali after-shave and ball cap. The department store had an Ali promotion - Ali in person signing autographs. One free for each bottle purchased and they threw the hat in as an extra inducement. That's where I obtained his autograph on the Superman v. Ali comic book I posted above.

Bottle is still full.
