1) "Jem Ward's Picture of the Great Fight Between Tom Sayers and J.C. Heenan for the Championship of England & America." Original lithograph dates from 1860 and features real people from the London well-to-do, including the prime minister and Charles Dickens. Rough wear on the borders (discoloration and tears) and three horizontal creases but the center image is still presentable when laid out flat; 2) Circa 1905 Mike "Kid" T54uths vs Kid Boult (on-site,14.25x22.25); 3) 1908 Joe Bedell vs Bant Dorsey (on-site, 14x22.5"); 4) 1919 "Art Plate of the Beckett-McGoorty Fight" (ad for premium, 28.75x18.75"); 5-8) circa 1930's prints of pre-1850 British boxing engravings, including "Tom Sayers, Champion of England (double-matted and framed 27x21", 18x13" visible), "Tom Cribb, Champion of England" (22.25x18.25"), "Deaf Burke" (19x15" on 27.5x21.75" mat) and "Jack Randall" (17x12.5" on 27.5x21.5" mat); 9) 1938 Leroy Haynes vs Andre Lenglet (on-site in France, 23.25x15.25"); and 10) 1950's "Boxing & Variety Show...Calvalcade of Champion" with Marciano, Robinson, Graziano, Walcott, Willie Pep, and others (mounted on board, 21.5x27"). The posters display varying degrees of tolerable wear (except where noted) but they all still display remarkably well despite the distractions.
