Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and information provided, the item is a framed career tribute poster commemorating the boxing career of Rocky Marciano circa late 1950s to early 1960s, signed in ballpoint pen with the inscription: "To Gregg Keep punching Pal Rocky Marciano". The 15" x 20" poster was issued by Coal Operators Casualty Company of Rockwood, Pennsylvania. Condition of the poster is estimated from the photos provided as Fair to Good as staining/spotting (some moderate to heavy in the poster's top right quadrant in particular) is visible on the piece along with a left side crease. Edge condition is unknown. While some resellers list their asking price of signed versions of this poster at $2,000, based on actual sales of Marciano-signed pieces at auction and previously sold versions of this same poster from boxing resellers, the Fair Market Value (a pre-auction estimate) of the piece conditional upon condition grading and autograph authentication by a reputable third-party such as PSA or JSA would be estimated at $750 to $1000.

This is a conditional appraisal, which means that we have not verified the authenticity of this item. Click here to learn more about the authentication resources that Mearto offers.
