Taken from a 4/22/99 Police Gazette issue, this print engraving features a central scene of Sayers and John C. Heenan from 1860, surrounded by vignettes from victorious bouts during 1849-1859 against Crouch, Paddock, Perry, Sims, Collins, Martin, Brettle, Benjamin, Jones, Poulson, Langham and Grant. The image area is apparent EX-MT with an as-issued center fold line and a few spots of barely perceptible professional restoration. The margins, meanwhile, show light foxing and a handful of edge chips. Dimensions are approximately 22 x 15-3/4", adhered to a 25 x 18-3/4" modern matte backing.
