Original 1910 silver gelatin photograph of Jack Johnson standing over Jim Jeffries as he was just knocked out. One of the most iconic boxing images of the era with this being an original example glued to slightly thicker paper for publication but completely original to 1910 and with nice clarity. The quality is perfect and the image displays great with note to a couple corner chips. One of only a handful of original examples of this photograph known to exist, this is a rarity capturing the finest moment of the most controversial early boxer in history.
