Solid cards in EX-EX/MT for the most part. For some reason the British sets seem to use a very young image of Sullivan that bears little resemblance to the barrel-chested, mustachioed image most of us are familiar with. The fact that he is labeled Johnny Sullivan in this set is also odd, but despite a decent amount of digging we can't find any other period appropriate boxer of note named any variation on John Sullivan. The hobby accepts that these are THE John L. and we can't prove otherwise. Out of the bigger names in the set the Sullivan and the Kid Berg are the only two included.
