Description



Dubbed "The Greatest Fighter Nobody Knows," Langford is considered by experts to be among the finest heavyweights who ever lived. He held the World Colored Heavyweight crown multiple times, but never had his rightful shot at a World Championship...in part because Jack Johnson refused to face him. Produced by J. Beagles & Co. of London, these unmailed portrait postcards measure 5-3/4 x 3-1/2" and feature fabulous images with classic poses and early garments. Nice glossy EX front sides and heavy reverse mounting wear.
