SLANIA World Champion Boxers GENUINE Private Proof Full Set! RARE! MNH
Slania's love for boxing prompted him to engrave a series of twenty-three Heavyweight Champions of the World, all in stamp format. They span a period from 1889 to 1964. The first was the bare-fisted boxer John L. Sullivan, and Slania used his his own hands as the model for the Sullivan-portrait. The year mentioned on each of these labels is the year of the championship. The labels are numbered consecutively in the upper left corner. These portraits show remarkably well Slania's outstanding skill of portraying people, and capture with his burin their nature and inner feelings. Purchasing these items can create problems for collectors. So many varieties exist that it is difficult to identify the originals from imitations. The portraits were printed on eight sheets with six of the sheets having multiple designs, ranging from 2 to 4 rows of portraits and 20 to 30 examples of the same design per sheet. When separating the sheets, different combinations of pairs can be made when rows of two different designs are next to each other (se-tenant). Warning: Be aware that fakes of the genuine boxer labels have been reproduced.
