This is a TWA post card signed on the back. I have seen a similar item authenticated by Beckett's but would appreciate opinions from this forum.  Thank you in advance.

very nice and authentic in my opinion

Wow!! Nice !!!!

Very nice and authentic.

Thank you terrier8HOF, J.Seah and Steve for your replies.  I have uncovered a few clunkers in my collection and cannot tell you all how reassuring it is to get your thumbs up on this one.  I have it framed with what appears to be an APwirephoto from May 25, 1965 Clay-Liston fight.  This has always been one of my favorites but makes it even more special to get some positive feedback.

Ali signatures from the 60's are highly desirable.  I have one that my parents got in person in '68, when he was in exile, at a restaurant in Cape Cod, MA.  He personalized to me, and added "World Boxing Champ" which I thought was very cool considering he was banned at that point.

I loved seeing Muhammad Ali on television when I was a kid (often threatening to pull the toupee off of Howard Cosell's head).  I can only imagine the thrill of meeting him in person.  He seems to have been a very approachable, engaging and generous person throughout his life.  It is always fun to hear the stories behind the autographs.

I was not there, but my parents were so happy when they came home. it was a small restaurant in the Dennisport area, and he walked in with his entourage.   My mom said he was very nice and accommodating.
