Two lines printed across bottom, in part: "Affiliated: American Hotels Corporation, United Hotels of South and West, Inc...." Boxer James J. Corbett became Heavyweight Champion of the World on September 7, 1892, when he knocked out champ John L. Sullivan in the 21st round of a fight held in New Orleans.

In 1929, the year he signed this autograph, Corbett appeared as in interlocutor in the early Fox musical, "Happy Days". It premiered just six weeks after he signed this autograph, on September 17, 1929, in New York City. Vertical mid-fold touches lower loop of "J" of "Jas". Very fine condition.
