Boxing has pretty much been given up for dead by many, but you’ll find plenty of people searching for information on the Paquiao fight. One problem.
It’s Manny Pacquiao… with a c.
So not everyone is hip with the spelling of boxing’s latest savior. At least they are talking about the “Paquiao vs Clottey” fight. And that’s a good thing.
It’s been a long time since boxing has had this kind of buzz. The sport has a long history and from a collector’s standpoint, boxing cards and memorabilia have a certain artistry to them. Muhammad Ali memorabilia is still held in very high regard. The vintage cards featuring guys like Jack Johnson and Rocky Graziano are works of art–and very scarce.

You’ll probably see a lot of “Paquiao” fight memorabilia this week.
There are almost 3,000 items right now on eBay.
All feature him in some way..although fewer than 500 are what you’d call ‘collecting related’ .
Who will get the best deal…those who spell his name right or those who find the typos and get a bargain to save–or flip?
