These large 3.5 inch celluloid pins were made to promote THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY at Madison Square Garden in 1971. It was the first boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, both of whom were undefeated. Each boxer had a legitimate claim as being the Heavyweight Champion.
Veteran boxing writer John Condon called it 'The greatest event I've ever worked on in my life.' The bout was broadcast to 35 foreign countries. Promoters granted 760 press passes. Madison Square Garden was electric on the night of March 8, 1971.
When the dust settled, Joe Frazier was 'The Greatest', winning the 'Fight of the Century'.
The celluloid-on-tin pins show very slight storage soil on the white background. Overall, pin are in excellent vintage condition.
Guaranteed old and original.
