ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Wow, what an iconic moment! The historic meeting between two of the greatest entertainers of their (or any) time! Elvis and the King came together in Las Vegas during February of 1973 for this memorable encounter. Elvis was performing in Sin City while Ali was training. During the visit, Elvis gave Ali a robe emblazoned with the words "The People's Champion." In turn, Ali gave Elivs boxing gloves inscribed "You're the Greatest" on the right glove. And, of course, they posed for photographs. “I was there the time Elvis presented Ali with the robe, and it was really something to see,” recalled Ferdie Pacheco, Ali’s fight doctor. “They were looking at each other like roosters. 'You look good, Ali.’ ‘Yeah, you’re looking good, Elvis.’ So here they are and they really wanted to be friends with each other, but they didn’t know what to do. They didn’t know how to connect.” High quality photographs of this encounter do not exist but this rare 16x20 or 11x14 reproduction has a classic and timeless look with its blemishes and blurriness. It is a throwback piece of Sports Art to another era. And is is part of our very cool unsigned SGA Signature Series w/ engraved facsimile Muhammad Ali AND Elvis Presley signatures on Inset "The King vs. The Greatest" Plate. Just a wonderful gift!
