Muhammad Ali Signed Autograph Photo [4593981]

Stunning 20x30 photo hand signed by Boxing Legend Muhammad Ali. Pictured in one of the most iconic sporting images of all-time where Ali is standing over Sonny Liston after knocking him out with the infamous 'phantom punch' in 1964. Ali has autographed the photo extremely clear in silver marker simply just signing 'Cassius Clay'. The autograph was obtained on the 8th August 1998 in Chicago. The photograph was the only 'Phantom Punch' photo that Ali signed 'Cassius Clay' for Stars Autographs Colorado that day. It was done after a lot of urging from the people working for his then agent Harlan Werner who were helping out with the private signing. Prior to signing this photo he signed two photos 'Muhammad Ali aka Cassius Clay' that are also extremely rare to find. Finding an autograph just signed 'Cassius Clay' autographed post 1964 when he publicly changed his name is one of the rarest autographs to find in the industry. The photo has been professionally framed and mounted to museum standard along with a plaque with the relevant details engraved. Overall size 42x34 inches. This item has been filmed and featured in channel 4s programme Posh Pawn.
