    Match of the Century: Dempsey Vs. Carpentier (Svenska Filmkompaniet, 1921). Folded, Very Fine-. Swedish One Sheet (23.5" X 35.5") Eric Rohman Artwork.
    Billed as "The Match of the Century," the 1921 fight between world heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey and world light-heavyweight champion Georges Carpentier gained international attention with the filmed recording shown in theaters across the globe. Eric Rohman gives an Art Deco style to the two prizefighters on this stone litho poster, offered for the first time at Heritage. Signs of handling include light edge wear, slight creases, and small tears. There is a minor chip in the top left corner, and the poster has a few unobtrusive smudges. Folded, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
