Lot 906: 1933 Young Corbett vs. Jimmy McLarnin Boxing Full Tickets (4 different)
Four from this World’s Welterweight Championship. From May 29, 1933 at Wrigley Field. The "most spectacular upset the welterweight division has known in many years." After Corbett had been floored twice and had his back to McLarnin, the "Irishman rushed across the ring and punched Corbett in the jaw again and Referee George Blake stopped the contest immediately. Corbett was out on his feet. Corbett was the seventh welterweight champion in succession to lose possession of the title in defending it for the first time." Pictures both fighters. Includes Ringside, Lower Grand Stand, Lower Stand Box, and Upper Stand Box. All are different colors, and the Ringside has some rubber band stains but is o/w EX.
