Jack Dempsey (1895 - 1983) was the first boxer to become a great celebrity, being three times world heavyweight champion, between 1919 and 1926. He invented his own style that was admired - and reproduced - by other boxers, such as Mohamed Ali or Mike Tyson. He was part of the Hall of Fame of the best boxers in history and continues to be revered in the United States, as an athlete and person, 30 years after his death.

During his retirement, between 1935 and 1974, Jack Dempsey opened and managed his own restaurant in New York, on Broadway Avenue, where he used to sign autographs on cards representing his great fights. Consequently, this document is not very rare, but the image and autograph as a whole, being beautiful and well preserved, makes an ideal gift or the first item in a collection.
