Unclassified Boxing Cabinets

1886 John Wood Boxing Cabinets.jpg

Cabinet cards are pictures mounted onto a piece of cardboard. This type of collectible became extremely popular in the 1800s and it wasn’t uncommon for families to have all sorts of cabinets featuring family members or famous people. Among those cabinets that were produced were several picturing boxers.

Some cabinets, like the 1895 N566 Newsboy Cabinets, were cataloged in the American Card Catalog. But numerous uncatalogued issues exist, too. Here are some of them.

Please note that some dates are speculative.
