I have a hunch you won't find many boxing collectors here. I have a neat old poster from the '50's that shows various Champs in all the weight divisions, but I don't have a scan of it.

Yes, UncleK, that's the one I have! Do you know anything about how/who issued it?

My son Jeff and I both collect boxing but I've never had an attraction to collecting fight posters. The only posters I own are a set of lobby posters from the 1954 movie "Roogies Bump" - the movie had Bums players Campy, Loes & Erskine in it in cameo roles, plus Ebbets Field footage.

Nice one Norm...I had the Orr poster hanging on my wall back in the early 70's, but don't know if I had tossed it eventually or my mother did.


 


'hockey bob-st.louis' recently sold one [last year] still in it's wrapper for $200.! [non-auto of course].


 


How did you get the auto?

Thanks John, Bobby is easy to get around here back in the day I got him to sign this at a rink around the Chicagoland area called 7 bridges, he would sign sometimes for nothing at the rinks around here.


 


Thats funny you mention hockey Bob... I bought the exact same poster in the wrapper you're talking about  from him . I still have it in the wrapper, I've been thinking of sending it to Bobby Orr to have him sign it. It's a great looking poster.

John,


 


Just to add a little bit to my last post. I bought my poster from him probably about 5-7 years ago. He must have some nice stuff put away.

Actually, now that I think of it Norm, it was definitely more than a year ago that I'm thinking of [time flies], so it's possible it was you who bought the poster from him. I do remember that it was in the $200. range, so if that's what you bought it for, you were the buyer. I had quit bidding at the $125. range.

I think that's it John. I think that's about what I paid. I bought a Hull too, the Hull was a different year than the one I posted here.

The Orr poster has definitely appreciated in value since 1970 Norm...I bought my poster for $1. at the local Army & Navy store where I used to my first hockey sticks. I think the poster that 'hockeybob' sold still had the original price sticker on the wrapper.
