Rare full ticket issued for the Heavyweight Championship bout between champion Muhammad Ali and Karl Mildenberger, held at Waldstadion in Frankfurt, West Germany, on September 10, 1966. Graded FR 1.5 by PSA. Foreign tickets for Ali championship fights, especially full examples, are rare and this example is no exception. This is the ONLY example of this particular full ticket graded at this level by PSA, with NONE graded higher. It is also one of only three full examples listed in the PSA Population Report. 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. This was Ali's sixth title defense and fourth on foreign soil. Mildenberger was the reigning European Heavyweight Champion at the time of their bout, but he was no match for Ali that night, as Ali recorded a technical knockout in the twelfth round of their scheduled fifteen-round fight. The ticket (6.75x3.5") displays a heavy vertical crease and a few lesser creases.
