Many photographs from 1890 to 1930 are autographed by the boxers and the referee. Included are photos of Jack Johnson, Jim Corbett, Joe Walcott and Max Schmeling.

The auction also includes a set of 24 1902 Sporting Life W600 cabinet photographs of baseball icons, including Cy Young, Christopher Matthewson, Hans Wagner, John McGraw, Napoleon LaJoie. Other items: 1959-60 pre-Super Bowl game football signed by the Giants on one side, the Colts on the other; baseballs signed by Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth, the latter with COA; and a 1941 black bat celebrating the Yankees World Championship.
