Jack Dempsey was the only man who could hold a candle to the popularity of Babe Ruth, but he had something Ruth did not… good looks! Dempsey was an extremely handsome man and was as popular with the ladies as he was his loyal fans. No photograph of the champion we have ever handled illustrates this fact better than this image. With his hair flowing from a workout and his chiseled face tilted into the light, this is the type of photo people today dream of on social media! by far the most ruggedly handsome image of Dempsey we have handled, this is stamped on the back by Wide World Photos and has a paper caption on the back as well.
