    Description

    "Mighty Mick's Boxing" Screen-Used Banner from Rocky II (United Artists, 1979). Vintage original large 67" x 127" heavy canvas banner, hand-painted with an image of an old-time boxer and the text "Mighty Mick's" above the image and "Boxing" below.

    This banner was prominently displayed on the exterior for "Mighty Mick's Boxing Gym" in Rocky II and is visible in scenes when "Rocky Balboa" (Sylvester Stallone) is training at the gym for his fights. The banner was acquired by a crewmember at the time the Rocky II sets were struck. Years later, when Sylvester Stallone requested the banner be tracked down to reuse in Rocky V (1990), the owner personally met with Stallone who graciously signed the banner at the bottom, "Sylvester Stallone 90". The banner was ultimately unused in the subsequent film.

    This impressive piece of "Rocky" history was trimmed along the edges following production and remains in vintage Very Good condition. Provenance: Profiles in History Auction 83, June 29, 2016, Lot 1210 and sold for $27,000. Comes with a COA from Heritage Auctions.
