This glove is an incredible piece of boxing history and while half of these legends signed in marker don't mistake/ underestimate that the signatures are actually bold and incredibly clear it is simply difficult to photograph correctly. This glove is a Kennedy leather 12 ounce and dates back to the late 50' or early 60s. I have had this one of a kind glove in my collection for years and I was lucky enough to have the thrill and pleasure of meeting all these legendary champions and personally obtaining their signatures.
I have priced this glove well below fair market value for several reasons #1 I know there will be some skeptic of the signature's boldness, I also know once the buyer receives, he will be pleasantly surprised. #2 I made a decision to keep a similar glove for myself and there is no need for two. If you take into consideration, there are 11 sigs here and not one is worth less than $100 and many are worth more than $500 each this glove could easily be priced at $5000.00 with fair market value and I am offering it at more than 50 % less than fair market value!!

I have been a boxing fan for nearly 40 years and have had the pleasure of going to the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota New York, Going to bouts at The Garden in NYC, Championship fights in Las Vegas and I can say I have had the honor and pleasure of meeting and obtaining the signatures of nearly every great Boxer that was alive over the last 40 years.
Over the years my collection has grown and grown and while my love for boxing will never die the space to display my AWESOME ARTIFACTS has become limited as I have downsized my preference has always been to display my items in beautiful frames as (shown above) but I no longer have the space to do so. You can see from the photos of my storage. So accordingly I have made it my goal to liquidate many of my cherished collectibles and stop wasting my money paying ridiculous storage fees.
This is why I made it a point to price my items CONSIDERABLY BELOW THE FAIR MARKET VALUE, it is better for other Boxing aficionados to enjoy these one of a kind items then have them sit in a storage facility
