Description

Climbing boxing’s ranks as the civil rights movement simultaneously grew, Sonny Liston was regarded as a decidedly unsavory character. While he was criticized for unlawful behavior, ties to the criminal underworld and a lack of patriotism, Liston could not be stopped in the ring. Encapsulated and Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA, this full ticket was issued on September 25, 1962 at Chicago’s Comiskey Park as Liston pummeled Floyd Patterson to claim the Heavyweight title. The lone specimen at its tier with none graded higher, the crisp voucher is deserving of its lofty technical grade with razor sharp edges/corners, printed seating/event details and a background image of the South Side venue.
