Lot 495: Rare Theodore “Tiger” Flowers Original Photo (6.5x9”)
Rare vintage photo of the first black World Champion since Jack Johnson. Tiger Flowers died tragically at age 32 after compiling a record of 115-14-6 (53 KO). The Georgia Deacon was a southpaw with potential to dominate the middleweight class. Characteristic of his gentle and upbeat nature, Flowers is shown here with wide smile in this black & white by Underwood & Underwood. Only slight toning, EX-MT condition.
