    A Burgess Meredith-Related Prop Photograph from "Rocky." United Artists, 1976. A black and white mocked-up photograph of Burgess Meredith's face on a boxer's body, purposely distressed with a dirtied and creased surface and ragged edges to look vintage; used in the scene when "Mickey" [Burgess Meredith] takes it out of his coat and shows "Rocky" [Sylvester Stallone] what he looked like as a young boxer years before; on display in Stallone's home for many years.
    Matted and Framed: 16" x 14"; Photograph Only: 10 1/2" x 8"

    "This picture represents a turning point in the entire Rocky series. Burgess Meredith, who plays Mickey, shows Rocky this photograph from when he was a young man and had promise like Rocky does now, but no one helped Mickey so he drifted into obscurity. This is the scene where Rocky decides to bond with this man who has been his enemy up until that time so he, Rocky, doesn't have the same fate."
