Description

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark and raised in Chicago, Illinois, former lightweight champion Battling Nelson penned this salutation and potent signature on a music program issued just months before he claimed his title. Dated March 10, 1908, this postcard-size program lists song titles/authors. In black-ink fountain pen, Nelson has inscribed heartfelt sentiments to a family and, at the conclusion, executed a signature that shows (9-10) strength. There are mounting remnants on the reverse. Accompanying is a period photo matted to 12-1/2 x 10-1/2. Full photo LOA from JSA.
