Available through Sports Illustrated in 1974, the “Living Legends” lithograph series was issued in limited quantities (/1500) and the original plates were destroyed so as to ensure that duplicates could not be produced. Here’s a scarce survivor autographed by subjects whose international rivalry divided fans on both boxing and political fronts. The 22x18 print is a limited edition (47/1500) portrayal of Joe Louis and Max Schmeling doing battle in the “squared circle.” The pristine piece is signed on the lower white border in graphite pencil. Under the appropriate images, Schmeling’s signature resonates (“9”) strength, while Louis’ scripting shows (“8”) quality. Full photo LOA from JSA.
