Loving remembrance 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 think of Marcel Cerdan, they immediately think of Edith Piaf... Shortly after the meeting, when Piaf was playing his first concerts 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 to be reunited.

Overwhelmed with grief, Édith Piaf writes two of her greatest hits "Hymne à l'amour" and "Mon Dieu" in memory of Marcel.

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