Affectionate memory for dear Mrs. Polge. Marcel Cerdan

Considered by experts as the greatest French boxer in history, Marcel Cerdan (1916 - 1949) was one of the first foreigners to win the world title, against Tony Zale in 1948.

When the French remember Marcel Cerdan, they immediately remember Edith Piaf... Shortly after the meeting, when Piaf was performing her first shows in the United States, Marcel became world champion. A few months later, he tragically dies in a plane crash on a flight from Paris to New York, where they were going to meet again.

Devastated by suffering, Édith Piaf writes two of her biggest hits "Hymne à l'amour" and "Mon Dieu" in memory of Marcel.

Known internationally above all for his love story with Edith Piaf, Marcel Cerdan was first and foremost a great boxer who was greatly admired and remembered in France: he was the first French world champion. This original autograph, in a newspaper article shortly after one of his big fights, is especially valuable.
