Heavy hitters from boxing's ancient past rise up with this 1948 Leaf Boxing 3-card panel lot of (12), including (6) with blank backs. A simple calculation of (12) panels x (3) cards per panel brings the lot total to (36) cards, including a good number of all-time greats such as John L. Sullivan, Joe Louis and "Sugar Ray" Robinson. Cut to various widths of 6-3/4" to 7-7/8", these well preserved panels present average EX to NM details, however the blank-back strips are absent approximately 3/8" of surface on the cards at the right end. Despite this condition, these panels boast bright, handsome examples far exceeding typically offered cards from this tough series.
