The Greatest is a 1977 film about the life of boxer Muhammad Ali, in which Ali plays himself. It was directed by Tom Gries. The film follows Ali's life from the 1960 Summer Olympics to his regaining the heavyweight crown from George Foreman in their famous "Rumble in the Jungle" fight in 1974. The footage of the boxing matches themselves are largely the actual footage from the time involved. The film is based on the book The Greatest: My Own Story written by Muhammad Ali and Richard Durham and edited by Toni Morrison. The song "The Greatest Love of All" was written for this film by Michael Masser (music) and Linda Creed, (lyrics) and sung by George Benson; it was later covered by Whitney Houston.

About Rockhurst AuctionsMy name is Jeff Marren, and I have been a collector since childhood-comics, stamps, movie posters, baseball cards (honestly I collected baseball cards just long enough to sell my brother's cards when I was 14. I bought some killer speakers, which he ended up with anyway). I have worked in the auction industry since the late 1990s, and I've been exposed to a wide range of collectibles including, but not limited to, movie posters, baseball memorabilia, autographs, fine art, comic books, and historical documents. My experience and passion for collectibles guide me in terms of presenting material in the manner in which I as a collector would like to see it offered at auction. From the photos to the descriptions to the condition breakdown, I just ask myself "what would I need to know to make a bidding decision," and that's what goes into the item page. I do the research to be able to describe items with the appropriate context for the buyer. All that said, I am always open to pertinent information concerning the auction items. So feel free to contact me if you feel some detail would be helpful to an item I am selling. I still work in the auction industry, but these eBay auctions are solely my endeavor and have no connection with any other company. About our Autographed OfferingsAll autographed items are sold only after being reviewed by a third party authentication firm such as Beckett Authentic, PSA DNA, James Spence Authentication or Upper Deck Authenticated. Each signed item will be accompanied by either an LOA or COA from one of these companies. About our Shipping PoliciesWe ship all orders with FedEx Ground or USPS, and include Delivery Confirmation if indicated in the description. The shipping rate is shown on each eBay listing, but we will combine orders for one shipping price after the auction. Each item will be protected for shipping using quality packing materials to ensure they arrive in the condition described above. A few reasons NOT to bidThe biggest source of grief in an auction transaction is questions asked after the fact. Please feel free to ask any question not covered clearly by the item description and photo BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR BID. We will answer them as promptly as we can. Our goal is to offer quality vintage material, describe it properly, ship it promptly after payment, and leave the bidder satisfied with their winnings. So, in the spirit of avoiding unnecessary conflicts AFTER an auction (when they are much more complicated for all parties to resolve) here are a few reasons not to bid in this auction: • I don't agree with the Condition Description. Don't bid. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but whatever you do don't buy an item you already think you don't like for some reason. It's a sure-fire recipe for unhappiness. • I don't agree with the shipping cost. Don't bid. We attempt to make the cost of shipping reasonable for the bidder and a break-even situation for us in terms of postal charges and packaging, and we will combine items when possible. Please don't contact us after the auction to request a different shipping method or price. • I don't think the item is original. Don't bid. If you think there is a problem with the item offered in terms of its authenticity, please contact us. But don't bid on an item you think may be a reproduction. • No one got back to me when I emailed a question. Don't bid. We will make every effort to contact any bidder who asks for more information, but in the unlikely event that your question goes unanswered before the auction's conclusion, don't bid. The goal here is to complete a transaction where we are all satisfied.
