    Of course, what do you want to know? One of the TRUE defensive wizards in boxing history (not overrated ones like Willie Pep), right up there with Pernell, Toney, Floyd, ect. One of the greatest 140lbers of all time, a personal favourite of mine.

    From what I read he was a true natural talent. Didn't like to train, was a heavy smoker all through his career, just a guy who was absolutely born to box.

    Yep, plenty fags, liked a beer, didn't have much of a work ethic when it came to training. Some fantastic videos on Youtube.

    What are these clippings you have and what did you want to know? He fought in the shadows of Monzon and could never get in the front seat. He was an absolute genius in the ring who humiliated his opponents instead of knocking them out. You might want to do a little research yourself as its not all that difficult.

    If you have actual press clippings of the guy from those days and are trying to sell them then screw all the ebay crap and stick them in kijiji specifically in Argentina.

    Hmmm I never knew that. I'm sure Argentina has its version of the same.The thing is if it were me and I had original clipping I would concentrate my attempts to sell them in Argentina first. There has to be something that is Argentina centric even if it means putting an ad in a Buenos Aires newspaper.

    For example, my twin brother has a Russian Iron cross that had been handed down to him from my grandmother who was a white Russian who fled the Bolshevik revolution. Her father was a body guard for the last Czar. We are getting older and neither of us have kids. I told him he should sell it and if not in a high stakes auction then by advertising in Russia.

    You have something that may not be all that rare in Argentina whereas my brothers family hand me down is extremely rare no matter where he offers it but he'd make more in Russia imo because of its ties. Your item could be rarer here then Argentina but still make more money there because of its historical significance.

    I've got a fair amount of boxing collectables but its a little hard to go further in advice w/o knowing exactly what you got.

    Nicolino Locche

    Started off as a 130 lb. Junior-Lightweight in December 1958, at {Age; 19}.

    By June 9, 1961 > he was already World-Rated as the #16 Lightweight after
    defeating {W Dec 12} Guillermo Cano for the Argentinian 'Mendoza Region' Lightweight
    Championship.

    Nicolino {Age; 20 years, 9 months} had moved his record to 16-1-6 with only {4 KO's},
    but was already called a World-Class defensive specialist.

    Nicolino had already fought World-Class Argentinians;
    * {Draw 10} ...... Jaime Gine
    * {Draw 10} ...... Manuel Alvarez
    * {W Dec 10} .... Vicente Milan Delgado
    * {Draw 10} ...... Vicente Milan Delgado
    * {L Dec 10} ..... Vicente Milan Delgado

    From the start of his career {December 12, 1958 thru November 11, 1964} nearly 6-Years, Nicolino had
    gone an incredible 52-1-11 in '64-Bouts'.

    Nicolino's only loss was a {L Dec 10} to Vicente Milan Delgado on November 6, 1959 in only his
    9th Professional bout.

    When you say official press photos do you mean on kodak paper or a newspaper? I took a closer look at that jpeg and it appears to be a picture of an actual picture which looks to have a small rip? Again condition is huge and it depends who the supporting characters are.

    The nice thing about old school photo's is they cant be manipulated w/o a trail.

    My advice to you would be to go get a couple of estimates from an honest sport memorabilia place. Now keep in mind that it would be best to narrow the field. Don't take them to Billy and Bobby's card and hobby shop. Plenty of boxing fans have never heard of this man so the neighbourhood corner shop probably has no idea either. Also for that very reason your market is a little thin. He was simply brushed aside in his day by Ali, Monzon etc etc. See but that also makes his stuff more rare and those who collect it more willing.

    A priority should be finding a collector specializing in boxing stuff. That should be your starting point.
    Guys like me do it for selfish reasons and dont buy to sell or have any idea on the market or the value.
    Just dont get played.

    Hope that helped a little. Good luck
