    I guess most of you haven't heard of him, but he was a great boxer from the
    early 1900's...

    some info here -
    http://www.boxrec.com/media/index.php/Boxer:Tommy_Burns:010744

    anyway, I've got a signed limited edition book of his, it's not perfect condition, but still ok tho...!!
    I forget the exact name of the book, but it's a scientific approach to boxing...

    any idea on what this would be worth..?

    I'm googling this now...

    cheers

    When I saw the thread title, I thought you were asking for medical advice .... after an accident envolving alcohol, an electric fence and a full bladder.
