MARCEL CERDAN

MARCEL CERDAN. Scarce vintage 4×6 glossy black and white three, quarter length portrait , by Harcourt , of the French world boxing champion , signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint ink , “A Mlle. Madeleine/aved tous mes sympathies/Marcel Cerdan.” Fine condition , with a mild diagonal bend in his boxing trunks , virtually invisible when the image is viewed head on; and the ink a shade light , but the writing rather clear when the photograph is slightly angled into the light. The vertical white line in the accompanying scan is purely a scanner glitch and is not present on the actual photograph.
