Offered is a June 10, 1963 Sports Illustrated featuring the greatest American pugilist, Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali). The cover of this magazine shows Clay in London with Big Ben as the backdrop. Clay was in England to fight Henry Cooper and stir up some publicity for his fight against Sonny Liston. Clay signed the presented magazine in black marker across the barrel chest of this boxing icon, grading (8). The magazine is all there, but there are no longer any staples holding the pages together. This scarce Clay signature on this vintage magazine is well worth close inspection. COA from James Spence Authentications.
