Muhammad Ali Autographed Boxing Gloves, Robe and Trunks (5)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $3,525.00
Since Barry Halper was commonly referred to as the greatest baseball collector in the world, it seems only fitting that he should have a few signed pieces from another man known the world over as “The Greatest.” Offered here are five items, each signed by Muhammad Ali: two red boxing gloves, two pairs of white boxing shorts and a Muhammad Ali replica training robe. Both of the gloves are identical left-handed Everlast boxing gloves and each has been signed on the back in silver Sharpie. The first glove has been personalized to Barry: “To Barry from Muhammad Ali – The Greatest – Good luck in your new office. 12-8-88.” The second glove has been inscribed “Best Wishes Muhammad Ali 12-8-88.” Each of the identical Everlast white satin boxing shorts is simply signed “Muhammad Ali” in black Sharpie on the right front leg. The black Everlast training robe has been inscribed in black marker on the white lapel: "Muhammad Ali Dec 4 - 83." Below his inscription, Ali has drawn a "smiley" face. Ali's name is lettered in white on the reverse. All of the signatures are boldly scripted and grade “10.” The glove bearing the inscription “Best Wishes” displays a few areas of light adhesive residue on the back (perhaps relating to the manner in which it was originally displayed), otherwise all of the items are in Near Mint condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 5 items (2 gloves, 2 trunks, and a robe). Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
