Scarce original circa 1909 poster featuring Jack Johnson as "Champion of the World," 15.75 x 19.25, featuring him in a full-figure boxing pose, flanked by one image of his birthplace and another of him driving his car. The printed notice in the lower left corner reads: "Copyright 1909 by Brandt & Scheible." Professionally linen-backed and in very good to fine condition, with several expertly-repaired tears. Printed shortly after Johnson took the heavyweight crown from Tommy Burns in Sydney, Australia at the end of 1908, this is a classic early boxing piece.
