Biography) DEMPSEY, Jack; CONSIDINE, Bob; SLOCUM, Bill
Dempsey (SIGNED & INSCRIBED BY ALL 3 AUTHORS TO OSCAR FRALEY, CO-AUTHOR OF "THE UNTOUCHABLES")
Simon and Schuster, 1960. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 249 PP. Very Good / Very Good. Stated "First Printing" on copyright page. Original price of $3.95 intact on front flap. Signed, "To my pal Oscar Fraley - My Best Always, Jack Dempsey" on first page. Additionally signed, "For the Unquestionable Best, Bill (Slocum)" and "How can I top two writers like the above, Bob Considine" on same page. Fraley famously co-authored "The Untouchables" alongside Eliot Ness. He was a sports writer with United Press International for over 25 years. A very rare signed association copy. Dempsey reigned as World Heavyweight Boxing Champ from 1919 to 1926. His 1921 fight against Georges Carpentier reported the first million dollar gate for a boxing event. His 1927 Tunney match netted a record-breaking two million dollar gate. While his accomplishments in the ring were 100 years ago, his name recognition and legacy continues to this day. Book exhibits a hint of wear to board edges. DJ a bit worn at edges and folds with some minor chipping to crown and foot of spine. Overall a solid VG/VG copy with an incredible association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
