    Howard Hughes personal signed photograph of champion boxer Jack Dempsey. (ca. 1920s/printed later) Gelatin silver photograph, approx. 8 x 10 in., depicting the illustrious heavyweight in ring attire. Amazingly, Dempsey once knocked out Howard Hughes when, on a whim, Hughes wanted to see "what it would be like to spar with the heavyweight champion". Inscribed by Dempsey to Hughes, "To my Pal Howard Hughes the Real Champ Jack Dempsey". Exhibiting mild marginal toning and corner creasing. In very good condition. From the personal collection of Howard Hughes
