Before Ric Flair or Hulk Hogan, there was Bruno Sammartino. In 1959, the Italian-American weightlifter bench-pressed a world record 565 lbs. That same year, he made his pro wrestling debut, thus beginning the greatest and most influential career of all time. Sammartino held the WWF Heavyweight title from 1963 to ‘71 – the longest reign ever – and added a second title stretch from 1973 to ‘77. The Living Legend, as he was best known, competed into his 50s and was a staunch advocate of clean, drug-free competition.

From one Italian fighter to another comes this Everlast glove signed by boxing great Jake LaMotta as a gift for Sammartino. The Bronx Bull used his more controversial nickname, personalizing it "To My Pal Bruno - Jake LaMotta - Raging Bull" in 7-8/10 black marker. Includes letter of provenance from his son and LOA from Beckett for the autograph (Cert. #: A32045).
