About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1950. Vintage photograph of boxer Floyd Patterson, circa late 1950s, with a postcard layout on the verso.

Floyd Patterson, known as the "gentleman boxer" and beloved by the public, had a boxing career which spanned over two decades, winning 55 bouts, losing eight, and one draw. In 1952 Patterson won the middleweight gold medal at the Helsinki Olympics with five knockouts in five bouts. In 1956, four years later, at the age of 21, he became the youngest heavyweight champion, defeating Archie Moore. Patterson lost the title in 1959 to Ingemar Johansson, regaining it again in 1961, this time defeating Johansson, becoming the first fighter to regain the title. He lost the title for the second and final time to Sonny Liston in 1962. Patterson was voted into the United States Olympic Committee Hall of Fame in 1987 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1991.

3.5 x 5.5 inches. Very Good plus, with a tiny chip to the top left corner and a small chip to the bottom right corner.
