    Leroy Neiman' Designed Tyson Vs. Spinks Poster Signed to Frank Sinatra. One of the most notable fights in Mike Tyson's controversial career, Tyson Vs. Spinks "Once and For All" marked his peak as a boxer. On June 27, 1988, in Atlantic City, three days before his 22nd birthday, Tyson KO'ed Spinks just 91 seconds into the first round. This poster advertising the highly anticipated fight (ticket prices ranged from $100 to $1,500) was designed by artist Leroy Neiman -- known for his screen prints of athletes and sporting events -- and later given as a gift from Neiman to Sinatra, an avid boxing fan. It measures 26" x 33", is mounted on foam backing board, and is inscribed "To Frank Sinatra 'who sets the standard champions are measured by' " in black marker, signed by Neiman and dated 1988. In great condition with a couple of small tears and some uniform discoloration around the edges. With COA from PSA/DNA.
