Muhammad Ali : Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.: (1942-2016) American former professional boxer, philanthropist and social activist. Considered a cultural icon, Ali has both been idolized and vilified. He became the most recognized athlete in the world. In 1996 at the Atlanta Summer Olympic Games, a surprised worldwide audience watched as Muhammad Ali lit the perpetual flame after receiving the torch from swimmer Janet Evans. Shown here is a 16x20, ltd edition color photo of Muhammad Ali about to light the flame that would burn in the stadium for the duration of the games. His signature has been authenticated by JSA with a full letter. On the right side of the shadowbox is an authentic Olympic relay torch, one of the ten thousand made for the over 17,000-mile trip from Athens Greece, to Atlanta Georgia. The collage is matted and framed as shown using red and gold matt on fabric with an informative plate and gold frame befitting the champion, to an approximate overall size of 34x39x5 inches.
