Principals in the 1952 and 1953 World Heavyweight title bouts, Rocky Marciano and Jersey Joe Walcott are the subjects of these autographed 8x10 photos. Includes: Marciano an original 1950s black-and-white photo of Marciano engaged in a handshake; signed in blue ink (“7-8” strength, vintage signature signed in the prime of his fighting career) and inscribed “You made me feel like a middleweight” (full JSA). In the background, a vintage automobile with New York license plates attests to the bygone era of this matte gloss stock photograph, whose surface makes the autograph blend and appear somewhat lighter than it would on another medium; Walcott an 8x10 promotional color print signed in blue marker (“9-10” strength) with JSA cert/sticker. Accompanying is a full ticket from the May 15, 1953 re-match at the Chicago Stadium (NM).
