NYC – Gone, to auction, are rare Muhammed Ali sports memorabilia.


On October 5th, one of my favorite auction houses – Bonham’s on Park Avenue will auction rare and important artifacts relating to the history of boxing, baseball and other sports…

The main focus of the collection are sketches and paintings by boxer Muhammad Ali. Who knew he loved to draw between fights?

The drawings, on display, many of them in cartoon style reflect Ali’s interest in religion and social justice, but there were also some that picture him in the ring. Ali’s passion for drawing was little known, but he liked to sketch as a way of unwinding after a fight or training.

In addition to the above there were other rare sporting memorabilia related to some of the greatest boxers and baseball players of all time!





A reminder that Auction Houses like Bonham’s, Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Philips’ place collections on public display. They are free to visit and three of them are convenient to midtown.

The staff welcomes you with a smile and all you have to do is ask if there are any open exhibits.
