The combatants for the highly anticipated 1897 bout between Jim Corbett and Bob Fitzsimmons are paired on these American Pepsin Gum pinbacks. The 1-1/4" celluloid badges are in superb condition given that they are 115 years old. Each displays a crisply attached metallic backing along with a clear "El Capitan Chewing Gum" paper advertisement liner. Only minimal discoloration affects the portrait of Fitzsimmons while Corbett's liner displays expected. Presents much nicer than those which commonly surface.
