Nice Simon Chocolate card of Ali. I know the cartoonish image isn't everyone's cup of tea, but the Simon Chocolate card has long been one of my favorite Ali cards because it captures his personality so well.

Of course, I also like Superman-Ali Samlarsaker card as well.

Which reminds me of an alleged conversation between Ali and an airline hostess.

Ali (protesting instruction to fasten his seat belt): Superman don't need no seat belt.

Hostess: Superman don't need no plane.

Picked these up yesterday at a card show. A trusted dealer had a stack of exhibit cards which I know nothing about, he said they were original, $2 each or 3 for $5. I said how much for the whole stack of 37? I bought them all for $25 three boxers, seven actors, one joke card, and twenty-five baseball players.

How much tougher are the boxing cards compared to the baseball players?

The boxing cards post-1930 are variable in terms of rarity. There are certain series that are very, very difficult to find, mostly from the depths of the Great Depression. The three you posted are a bit later and are common.
