Classic October 2008
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Muhammad Ali penned this pair of quotations in bold red ink ("10") while training for his bout with Jurgen Blin in Zurich, Switzerland. The piece of wax paper stationery (8-1/4" x 11-3/4") has letterhead of Zurich's Atlantis Hotel and is numbered, "15," in Ali's hand at top left. The page was divided by the pugilist into two sections with each segment bearing a different quote, respectively, "The very thought of the love of God fills the heart with joy, and relieves it of its burden (signed) Muhammad Ali - Peace"; and "The attitude of looking at everything with a smile is the sign of the saintly soul (signed) Muhammad Ali - Peace." Ali's flowing signatures are beautiful examples, and the sheet itself reveals EX/MT condition. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA.
