Baer had perhaps the greatest right hand in heavyweight history. His devastating right resulted in the death of his opponent Frankie Campbell in 1930. Baer later held the Heavyweight crown for one year, until he lost to “Cinderella Man” Jim Braddock in what is considered the greatest upset in boxing history, with the possible exception of Buster Douglas’ knockout of “Iron Mike” Tyson. Outside the ring, Baer’s good looks, quick wit, and charismatic personality made him a natural for Hollywood. He appeared in approximately 20 movies and was married to actress Dorothy Dunbar. For Baby Boomers, the name Max Baer is more readily associated with his son, Max Baer, Jr. who famously portrayed Jethro Bodine on the long-running comedy The Beverly Hillbillies. Knowing the Heavyweight champ’s lifestyle, you’ll understand why there are a million stories locked inside this legendary card. Baer’s PSA 8 Sport Kings example shown here is indeed nothing short of remarkable, with great color and detail as devastating as a Baer overhand right.
