A rare oppotunity is avalaible to purchase a unique piece of Muhammad Ali memorabilia. This item is limited to only 250 in the world, with each item unique to another.
This item was hand signed in 1996 by Muhammad Ali and each glove was uniquely painted by the late renowned pop artist Steve Kaufman. As an Andy Warhol protege, Kaufman's work distinctively shows the influence. In Ali's tribute, Kaufman created limited edition paintings (using Everlast 14 oz. boxing gloves as media) in his "1960 Olympic Series." Offered is a pair of gloves with the right one transformed into a hand painted piece of artwork. It is accented by a youthful screened-on image of Ali which is embellished by the Olympic rings. Under the champ's glowing likeness there appears Ali's black felt tip signature . The reverse of the glove is initaled by the artist, "SAK", and this one is hand numbered 116/250. The unsigned companion glove (left) has a printed tribute to the 1960 Olympic gold medal winner by listing the bouts and the opponents he defeated.These are the only Olympic authorized gloves EVER done! It took over 4 years to get the licensing. To see more items we have for sale visit our ebay store or go to . $3500.
