October 13, 1975 issue of Sports Illustrated, signed by both Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

Spectacular SI issue documenting the "Thrilla in Manila," the third and final bout between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.  Fought in the Phillippines, the fight is considered one of the greatest ever, with Ali winning the fight by TKO over Frazier, the two champions brutally beating one another for 14 rounds.  Despite the victory, after the might, Ali stated that it was the closest to dying that he had ever been.

The publication is in excellent condition, with little edge wear, preserved remarkably well.  Along the left edge near the bottom, one can see some specks of paper loss resulting from the removal of the address label.  Aside from that, there is minor surface wear throughout, nothing so severe as to distract from the overall presentation.  Ali has signed at the bottom edge in blue sharpie, with Frazier affixing his signature above, in gold.

An outstanding piece from one of the most memorable fights in the history of the sport.  COA from SGC Authentic.
