Graded 30 GD 2 by SGC. Although the dominant image gracing this likely one-of-a-kind collectible is that of pugilist Terry McGovern, the caption (as well an eerie trace of blue belt and trunks that are not McGovern's) belongs to an adversary: Jimmy Britt. In a mismatch of fascinating proportions, the factory charged with manufacturing E76 made a misstep in the creation of this example, wherein the piece was almost fully printed (as "McGovern") until the last, blue-ink stage (enter "Britt"). The result was this impossibly rare and intriguing caramel card, an oddity that features bold designs on both sides, natural wear at the corners, and a spot of surface disturbance (to the right of the checklist's onset) on the reverse. A marvelous conversation piece, in deceptively attractive Good condition.
