Jack Dempsey Signed Photograph.
1936. Full length photograph of the young boxer Jack Dempsey in a fighting pose. Warmly inscribed by Jack Dempsey,"To a charming Little Girl 'Bincy' Jones, Her Daddy's Pal, With Best Wishes, Jack Dempsey 2-10-39." Matted and framed. Measures 9.5" x 12.5". Heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey's "exploits distinguished the 1920s as 'the golden age of sports'... In the ring, he was a tiger without mercy who shuffled forward in a bobbing crouch, humming a barely audible tune and punching to the rhythm of the song. He was 187 pounds of unbridled violence... In 1950, a poll by the Associated Press named Dempsey the greatest fighter of the half-century."
