Clean, October 1949 issue of The Ring magazine, featuring an illustration of "The Bronx Bull," Jake LaMotta.  LaMotta won the middleweight title in June of that year, defeating Marcel Cerdan, who dislocated his arm in the first round when LaMotta knocked him down.  Set to defend his title in a rematch that October (the month this edition of The Ring was published), Cerdan's plane crashed en route to his training camp in the the United States, killing everyone on board.  

The magazine, though brittle with age, presents very well, a minor stain visible in the upper-right corner and some very minor wear elsewhere, notably at the spine and edges, including some small tears.  LaMotta signed and personalized the piece in blue fiber tip marker, to "My Pal Ted," a reference to sportscaster Ted Patterson.  Basic cert from James Spence Authentication.
