Boxing Cards Galore

RingLords, Kayo and World Boxing are the card collections that are featured in this article although their are many other boxing card companies. Boxing cards have been produced for over 90 years. The three sets mentioned above have made several editions of cards unlike the rest. Anytime a boxing card is autographed the value soars especially of its a legend who signed it. I'm a freak for prizefighting so I love boxing cards and keep mine inside of plastic sleeves.

I keep my RingLords, Kayo and World Boxing cards in either frames as seen in some of the pictures or in photo albums with baseball card sleeves. I collect other boxing memorabilia but cards and Ring magazines are my favorite pieces.

* If you have a boxing card collection please share your thoughts in the comments capsule located at the bottom of this page.

Special Collector Boxing Cards

Evander Holyfield fought George Foreman in 1991 and it was billed as The Battle of the Ages. Kayo produced a holographic card to commentate the event. It came randomly packed in some decks of KO's introductory boxing card set.

World Boxing has produced a 10 card Muhammad Ali special set. They show him winning gold, posing and of course in action against other boxers. It's a great set to have for fans of The Louisville Lip or for boxing card collectors in general.

RingLords Boxing Cards

RingLords boxing cards tell a brief description of the boxers career up to that point. They also show the birth date and their record. The difference between a Ringlord boxing card and the others is that RingLords uses very shiny and glossy looking material on their card collections. To me they are the nicest and clearest of the cards that are out on the market. Ringlords had lots of nice photos with details in their card decks.
