1890's Gus Ruhlin original cabinet card
A rare antique cabinet card of leading bare knuckle heavyweight contender Gus Ruhlin. Ruhlin fought almost all the 'names' of his era including Bob Fitzsimmons, James J. Jeffries, Tom Sarkey, Peter Maher, Marvin Hart, Joe Choynski and many more. Arguably his best result was a twenty round draw with Jeffries at Mechanic's Pavilion, San Francisco, California USA in July 1897. Image by Stacy of 5th Ave & 9th St. In fair condition with moisture stains and paper loss to the right side of the photo (not effecting core of the image). Superb clarity.
