Exceptionally difficult 1901 Ogden's card from the "Boer War and General Interst (Sportsmen Group)" issue, mislabeled by SGC as "Heroes of the Ring."  The card presents extremely well, graded AUTHENTIC by SGC due to a slight trim.  Wear is evident in the form of mild creasing and cracks to the thick gloss of the card, most notably down the center from the top.  The wear does not detract considerably from the eye appeal of the cards, however, an exceptional card and significant rarity of boxing's first three-division champion (1891 Middleweight, 1896 Heavyweight, and 1903 Light Heavyweight Championships).  Fitzsimmons was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in the "Old Timer" category.
