Mike Tyson is about to embark on one of the biggest tests of his illustrious career after lacing up his gloves and heading into the ring at 54 years old and for the first time in 15 years. While Iron Mike has been training day and night for his upcoming bout against Roy Jones, Jr. at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, he’s also inking some new partnerships that are capitalizing on the boxing legend with a new line of autographed memorabilia.
Mike Tyson has partnered with Las Vegas-based Inscriptagraphs for a drop of limited-edition memorabilia with handwritten quotes from The Champ himself. The autographs are a unique experience, as Tyson has written messages on various items, including gloves and boxing trunks, that reflect his feelings on some of the monumental moments of his past.
According to Inscriptagraphs:
“The theme of the Tyson Vs. collection is to capture a personal bond with Tyson through each unique item in the form of a trophy that only you, the Tyson fan, will own. The Tyson Vs. collection gives a unique take on Mike’s career through a one-of-a-kind product line that captures the who, what, when and where of each fight. The product line includes highlights of his career, the good and the bad, wins and losses, triumph and failure all through his own handwritten words, expressions and his signature.”
The messages written on the merch is truly in Mike Tyson fashion, with one message on a pair of trunks reading, “Fuck yeah I bit his ear,” in reference to the famous bout with Evander Holyfield.
Another autograph states, “You got knocked the fuck out,” written on a golden glove.
Inscriptagraphs had Tyson sign a ton of stuff, including 58 pairs of golden gloves, 58 boxing trunks and 45 autographed fight posters from the boxing icon’s various bouts.
The pieces range in price from $500 – $1,600 and are available now on Inscriptagraphs.
