Circa 1889 John L. Sullivan vintage cabinet card
An original 1889 cabinet card of The Boston Strongboy - John L Sullivan - who ruled the brutal world of bare knuckle boxing until the change to the Marques of Queensbury rules in North America. The sepia toned photo is mounted onto a board measuring 4.25 x 6.5". There is a facsimile of Sullivan's signature across the bottom of the board. Good condition with wear and chipping to the border. The image itself is unaffected, a remains bright and surprisingly clean for its age.
