The Greatest of All-time
Original - Hand signed - Authentic - Vintage
We start with a vintage RING magazine from June 1978 - SPECIAL HEAVYWEIGHT ISSUE. OVER 40 YEARS OLD!!! Then we add the clear and bold signatures of the Heavyweights on the cover - Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks!!
Both have added inscriptions to their signatures Spinks adding "To Bill Best Wishes" and Ali adding "To Bill 4-30-96"
Obviously ill health hadn't allowed this for 20 years prior to his passing, so this is a blast from the past. A VINTAGE signature from the same year a shaking Ali lit the Olympic Flame to open the Games in Atlanta - 1996. One of the most famous sporting moments on the past 50 years. The RING Magazine is still in MINT condition with the ink still being as clear and sharp and bold as the day MUHAMMAD ALI signed it in April of 1996.
So not only a vintage publication from the glory days of Heavyweights, but it has also been personally signed by one of the GREATEST athletes/ and most well known humans of ALL-TIME.
Ali was adored worldwide for his althetic prowess as well as his magnetic charisma. He would constatntly sign autographs for his fand when his health was still with him. By the time 1996 rolled around, Parkinsons had taken hold of Ali and he struggled witth many phyisical acts. Considering this, his signature from April 1996 is very clear and bold. He would add "To Bill" to the autograph and date it to represent a moment frozen in time forever . Therefore this isn't one of the thousands of commercial signatures that Ali was paid a vast sum of money to sign, but it represents a brief moment in time when Ali met a fan and signed the Bible of Boxing - The Ring. This makes it very very special and a glimpse into the life of the Greatest.
