Large broadside for September 7, 1955, bout between Welterweight Champ Carmen Basilio and Gil Turner at Memorial Auditorium in Syracuse. Cardboard backed 28x22" poster is in FR condition, having taken a beating with moderate fading to the colors and a few sizeable tears, though the piece remains full and intact. Clearly not a title fight as print on top border notes, "Turner Seeking Title Bout," which he clearly did not earn, despite hanging tough in a 10-round majority decision loss.
