Description


American boxer (1866–1933) who was the first gloved heavyweight boxing champion of the world from 1892 to 1897. ALS signed “Jas J Corbett,” one page, 4.25 x 6.5, E.F. Albee Theatre letterhead, January 28, 1926. Letter to Vance, in part: “My mail is so large I just reached your letter, and when I played Phila last week had not read your letter. The story is very good but I don’t think I will ever go out, in a play again.” Double-matted and framed with a three-quarter portrait of the southpaw to an overall size of 15.75 x 12.5. In fine condition. After retiring from boxing in 1903, Corbett’s natural competence as an actor enabled him to make a living as a performer for over two decades, appearing in plays, silent films, vaudeville, and one-man shows recounting his boxing career. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
