Included is the original envelope for the Ali Foreman January 28th fight tickets. From our consigner who was given these items from Dick Young. Dick Young 1917 – 1987 was a sportswriter best known for his direct and sometimes abrasive demeanor, and his 40 plus year association with the New York Daily News. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and was a former president of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Young was the first sportswriter to treat the clubhouse as a central and obvious equation in the sports "beat". He was a success at digging up information and insights from within the previously private sanctum of the team. The Boston Globe's Bob Ryan said of Young, "He's the guy that started it, the guy who went into the locker room, and that changed everything.”photograph 8 x 10 and standard size envelopephoto paper, paper8 x 10 inchesPhoto is in MINT condition.
