Original ball point pen signature of the famous heavyweight boxing champion and cultural icon of the 1920's, JACK DEMPSEY (1895-1983). This signature is on the back of an envelope, which has been clipped, then inserted into a small frame, superimposed on reproduced imagery of the champ in his boxing days. Dempsey was world heavyweight champion from 1919 to 1926. After a long career in the ring, he became a celebrity restaurateur and philanthropist in his later life. A 1977 autobiography was published. See the Wikipedia extensive bio for much detail on Dempsey's life. This autograph is said to have come from a Seattle home.
