Mike Tyson // Peter McNeeley Dual // Autographed "Tyson Vs." Photo + Inscription // 16x20 // #D/10
Boxing has had its fair share of legends and icons, but one man brought a whole new dimension to the sport that no other man before him was able to reach. Michael Gerard Tyson is feared by most for his power, strength, eccentric and expeditious style of victory. Given the nickname "Baddest Man on the Planet", he certainly lived up to his given name. Still to this day, his legend lives on and is as popular as he has ever been throughout his career. That is why Inscriptagraphs is proud to announce Tyson Vs., the very first of its kind featuring and highlighting every monumental fight throughout Mike's illustrious career. This collection gives a unique take on Mike's career by capturing the good and the bad, wins and losses, triumph and failure all through his own handwritten words, expressions, and signature.
This photo showcases Mike Tyson from his fight against Peter McNeeley on August 19, 1995 where Tyson ends up winning via DQ as McNeeley's manager entered the ring in the middle of the fight for obvious reasons as seen in the photo shown. This photo is dual signed by both Mike and Peter and inscribed pretty much all over the photo. Tyson hand wrote on the photos "Medfielllldddd & Love You Peter" & McNeeley hand wrote "I tried wrapping Tyson in my Cocoon of Horror" as well as his fight record "47-7 & 36 KO's) (knockouts).
McNeeley who is from Medfield, Massachusetts put the town on blast right before he waked into the ring to fight Tyson. Hence, why Tyson was making a reference to the town name in the inscription. As far as "Love you Peter" goes, Tyson had many knockdowns through the duration of the fight which only lasted through the 1st round and also Mike when signing this photo has mad respect for Peter and loves him not only as a great opponent but as a dear friend of his. As for McNeeley, he made a beautiful poem expressing his thoughts on the fight and what he planned on doing to Tyson in the fight. He let Tyson know he was going to "Wrap him up in his cocoon". This of course did not happen but Peter is a great sport and admitted in his own handwriting he tried to do it but failed. Then again, we give him credit for going up against the Baddest Man on The Planet.
When conducting our signing with Peter, he let us know he rarely (and he can count the times all on 1 hand) has ever signed anything that was already signed by Tyson yet alone anything on this level with all the inscriptions and all. You want a rare piece with a great story, you have it here and only 10 exist.
