The rare and highly collectable item of signed boxing memorabilia is a hard back book titled ‘The Greatest’ that is personally signed to the inside cover by the great man himself.Part of private collection recently acquired by Spirit of Sport the book was first published in 1992 and has 544 pages in which the author through accounts of noteworthy admirers and close-associates chronicles the life and times of a living legend. Long-time pugilistic journalist and award-winning author Thomas Hauser has painstakingly compiled a wealth of information to support what seems to be his thesis: that no matter how amazing Muhammad Ali was in the ring his worth as a boxing champion is far exceeded by his worth as a citizen of this world. In 500 pages of text we are able to follow Ali in his growth from a brash boisterous heavyweight contender to a highly devoted man of God who brings happiness wherever he tarries. For fight fans all of the classic bouts from Liston I to Manila are covered.The owner of the book obtained it personally at a book signing some years ago and is presented in very good overall condition.Bearing in mind authentic Ali memorabilia is now very rare and expensive this is a great opportunity to add the ultimate signed book to your collection.
