The paper upon which Fitzsimmons has signed is of the same general size and stock of a modern business card, with some scrapbook residue on both face and verso, neither detrimental to the autograph in any way.
Included in the lot are a vintage photograph (3.5x6") and Allen & Ginter trading card picturing the Boxing Hall of Famer.

Throughout my time with online dating, I have noticed that there seem to be a lot of guys who will send a message somewhere along the lines of "Want to meet today/let's go out tonight".

How can an authenticator approve a genuine item when they have non-authentic exemplars in their files?
Listed at number eight on the Ring Magazine list of the one hundred greatest punchers of all time, Fitzsimmons finds himself sandwiched between Jack Dempsey and George Foreman, whose devastating power is the stuff of legend.
In fact, four years after signing this 9+/10 black fountain pen signature for a fan, his first-round knockout of Con Coughlin, known as "The Irish Giant," proved fatal, as Coughlin would succumb to his injuries the following day.
Fitzsimmons' tremendous relevance as one of the sport's all-time greats is essentially inversely proportional to the availability of his autograph, and we must stress that any quality example should be considered carefully by the educated collector.
