The Greatest Comeback !

Extraordinary photo of iconic turn of the century boxer Jack Johnson.  Vintage Jack Johnson boxing photos are extremely RARE, this being no exception.  This is the ONLY time we have ever seen this photo.  And this is an original TYPE I.    Very good condition with expected handling wear for a near 100 year old photo.  And terrific original provenance on the back.
