Exceedingly rare full ticket (5.75x1.75") issued for the NABF Heavyweight Championship bout between champion Muhammad Ali and Bob Foster held at Sahara Tahoe, in Stateline, Nevada, on November 21, 1972. Graded EX 5 by PSA. This is the ONLY full example of this particular full ticket listed in the PSA Population report and we cannot recall the last time we have seen another. This ticket was culled from the #1 Ranked Muhammad Ali Ticket Collection on the PSA Registry, which is being offered as a "set break" in our Spring Classic 2022 auction. Listed on the PSA Registry as "Muhammad Ali On-Site Ticket Collection," the collection is 74.60% complete with a Weighted GPA of 11.56. Bob Foster held the World Light Heavyweight Championship from 1968 to 1974, during which time he defended his title fourteen times. Unfortunately for him, his two attempts at winning a heavyweight championship ended the same way: in a knockout. Joe Frazier knocked him out in the second round in 1970, while Ali knocked him out in the eighth round, but not before sending Foster to the canvas seven times overall during their bout.
