Last of the bare-knuckle champions and first of the gloved champions, the Boston Strong Boy is featured here on a VG cabinet with his facsimile signature on the lower mount and his statistical record on reverse. The cedar cigar box is GD overall except that the lid—which has a pictorial underside (well-preserved) and a stamped top ("THE CHAMPION CIGAR / JOHN L.")—is separated. There are three manufacturer's labels and one matching pictorial panel on the box portion.
