All forty-nine cards have been graded and encapsulated by Advanced Grading Company in Ohio. Since we are not familiar with this company and we have different grading standards, the following condition composite and grades on individual cards have been provided by the REA staff, and the higher assigned grades from the grading company had no bearing in describing this set. Keys: #1 Dempsey (Ex), 9 Jeffries (Ex-Mt), 17 Johnson (Ex-Mt), 25 Attell (30/70 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 32 Schmeling (25/75 L/R, o/w Ex), 38 Sharkey (Vg-Ex), 48 Louis (Ex), 55 Corbett (Vg-Ex/Ex), 63 Fitzsimmons (Ex), 64 Robinson (Vg-Ex/Ex), 73 Tunney (Ex), 93 Baer (Ex), 101 Sullivan (20/80 L/R, o/w Ex), and 102 LaMotta (15/85 L/R, o/w Ex).
