Lot 2172: Rocky Marciano Signed Photograph & Letter
Unusual piece acts as both a signed photo and handwritten letter. 8x10" image of Rocky is signed in Mint black marker "To Maurg…Good Job…Rocky Marciano." Signature is Mint, but the contrast is not the greatest. The plain white verso is signed, "I'll be in Boston at the Logan Int. Motel Boston Airport from the 5-21 to 5-26. If you need a story from ringside, a bird's eye view of the fight, no charge to you or your newspaper. Just call before or after. Say hello to Lou Ferrell and Babe for me, they treated me so good…Rocky." Mint blue ink with small "May 1, 1965" stamping in center. Photo is EX. Looks to be a corporate promo still, he is wearing a "CO" patch on his blazer.
