Physical Description

An advertisement or a collector's card featuring a monochrome, photographic image of a boxer with his fists in the air. The figure is wearing white boxing shorts, a black sash, with black socks and laced up shoes. The image is superimposed on a background composed of a red diamond shape on a green background with a white star in each corner. The reverse announces an upcoming match with Matt Wells and gives the statistics of Bronson's fighting records. The text reads in part "RAY BRONSON (American) ... 28th February, 1914".
