TOM HEENEY TRAINS

FOR HIS BATTLE WITH THE CHAMPION


FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR AMERICAN TREASURES

OLD SPORTING MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

Folks, EBay and their new presentation on EBay Stores enables sellers to present a wider number of items than before. Here is the first of a number of boxing events, I will document from a featured page that was published back in 1928 It is entitled

TOM HEENEY TRAINS

FOR HIS BATTLE WITH THE CHAMPION

GENE TUNNEY

Back in 1928, Champion Gene Tuney and Challenger Tom Heeney were preparing for their Championship bout at Yankee Stadium on July 26. Here is a collage of photos with text about the training of the challenger.

Humbly, I am trying to keep history alive. I have indexed below the names and pictures of events as described on this report. Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our ancestors. During my research, I discovered that hundreds of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because old Boxing Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

There were many pictorials published – the common ones are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones like this one covering great figures of our time never make it. They are hard to find. Collectors treasure them. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of the best.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES AND IF I FIND SOMETHING OF INTEREST FOR YOU, I WILL PLACE IT ON EBAY STORES AND GIVE YOU FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO

BUY IT NOW

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our ancestors.

I hope you appreciate the effort.


Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend.

OLD TOM HEENEY MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD HISTORY. What a Rare Item!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was saved from this old American pictorial magazine of many years ago. This page is (11 by 15 inches) and the ORIGINAL 80-YEAR-OLD piece in really good condition for it’s age.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story saved from a rarely found and seldom read American pictorial magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada, $4.75 Priority Mail, $11.00 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
