FIGHTING DICK HYLAND

ORIGINAL 1909 SIGNED AGREEMENT

 

 

FIGHTING DICK HYLAND

"California's Greatest Lightweight"

In 1909, Fighting Frank Fullgraff, of the Brett Lithographing Co., requested permission from Dick Hyland  to reproduce his image on boxing cards of the day.  In turn, Fighting Dick Hyland signed this contract, confirming his agreement.

In 1911 the Surbrug Cigarette Co. Prize Fight Series No. 101 tobacco card set was produced.  Later categorized as the T225 set, the "Fighting Dick" Hyland card not only reproduced his image but also reproduced his exact signature as it appeared on this contract.   Historic piece! 

No Longer Available

*Also included is this original studio posed photograph of Dick Hyland, circa 1909. Magnificent, crystal clear image of The Pride Of San Francisco, mounted on board, measuring 4 1/2 inches x 7 inches.

 

 

Scrappy "Fighting Dick" Hyland failed, in 1909, to take the lightweight world title from Battling Nelson.   Later that year, Hyland fought a marathon bout with Leach Cross "The Fighting Dentist".   Incredibly, he knocked out Cross in the 41st round of a scheduled 45-round contest.
 

 

 

OSCAR De La HOYA 1993 FIGHT WORN HANDWRAPS

 

On Tuesday, April 6, 1993 at the Rochester War Memorial, undefeated OSCAR De La HOYA fought tough Mike "KID IRISH" Grable in an important lightweight bout.  De La HOYA knocked Grable down twice as Grable took a standing eight count in the 8th round.  De La HOYA went on to win an easy 8 round decision in this, his 6th professional bout.   

On offer are the fight worn handwraps from each fighter, which were signed by both fighters in the dressing room, immediately following the fight. 

OSCAR De La HOYA has signed both his wraps and has added the rare notation "GOLD '92" on each wrap.  This, of course is in reference to his Gold medal win in the 1992 Olympics.  Only his very early autographs were signed with this Olympic reference.   

Mike "Kid Irish" Grable has signed both of his wraps and has also added the date and his fight record noting his loss to OSCAR. 

Also, included is the original onsite FIGHT POSTER for the fight.      

This UNIQUE collection of, future boxing hall of famer, OSCAR De La HOYA original fight worn memorabilia is now for sale.

TOMMY BURNS

Noah Brusso

 

Tommy Burns (real name Noah Brusso) was the smallest (5 ft. 7 in.) and sometimes most belittled of the heavyweight champions.  Canadian born in 1881, he began boxing in 1900.  When Jim Jefferies retired, Jack Root was paired against Marvin Hart to fight for the vacant title.  Hart won, but lost to Burns over 20 rounds on Feb. 23, 1906.  Tommy made four defenses in America, then went abroad and bested the British champion and several others.  He fought in France, then went to Australia, where he made two successful defenses of his crown.  However, on that fateful Boxing Day 1908, in Sidney, Jack Johnson toyed with "Mr. Tommy" (the three-to-one favorite).  Tough Tommy Burns hung on until the 14th round when the cops stepped in to stop the bout.   

On offer is an original photograph boldly signed and inscribed by Tommy Burns in dark blue fountain pen "To Johnny Obbecke, One of the Best, Every Good Wish, Tommy Burns".  It measures 6 inches x 4 inches and would display beautifully in a vintage frame 

This autographed photo comes from the recent  Johnny Obeck estate sale.  John Obeck fought around the 1900's under the names "Johnny Obeck" and "Johnny Leonard" and Johnny Obbecke".
