Still considered one of the greatest World Heavyweight Champions of all-time, James J. Jeffries was a national hero in 1909 when the W.P. Jeffries Company issued a 55-card playing card deck bearing his endorsement. With the champs smiling mug on the backs of each card, the playing surface displays 53 different boxing scenes and fighters, from Jack Dempsey and John L. Sullivan to Stanley Ketchel and Abe Attell (of the Black Sox scandal). A veritable “who’s who” of the fight community in 1909, this set is the complete issue including the title card and small, thin paper booklet. Cards show some use but overall this scarce 1909 set is complete and in very good condition.
1909 Jim Jeffries Souvenir Playing Cards Set (53) - Includes Title Card, Instruction Sheet, & Joke
