Description

    Frank Sinatra Photograph of Ali vs. Frazier #1. In 1971, Life magazine commissioned Frank Sinatra to photograph the now-legendary boxing match known as "Ali-Frazier 1," held on March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden. It was unique in that for the first time in history it matched an unbeaten former heavyweight champion against the unbeaten current champ. (Ali lost the fight -- putting an end to his unbeaten status -- but won the subsequent '74 and '75 rematches.) Some of the photos appeared in the March 19, 1971, issue of the magazine, and one of them appeared on the cover. This lot includes one of the color photos taken by Sinatra of that bout, measuring 11" x 14" and matted in white. Letter of authenticity included.
