Smokin' Joe Frazier Boxing Gear Part of Haddonfield Doctor's Collection

Haddonfield doctor Nicholas DePace has a world-class sports memorabilia collection featuring Joe Frazier's boxing gear. DePace and Frazier were friends.

The planned Nicholas DePace sports museum on Haddon Avenue in Collingswood will feature the robe and trunks Frazier wore before his signature fight with Muhammad Ali in 1971.

Frazier was a patient of Dr. DePace's and a friend, he said. DePace is a cardiologist. Frazier, a former heavyweight boxing champion, died Monday following a brief bout with liver cancer.

DePace's collection also features a rare Honus Wagner baseball card from 1910 which he bought from an order of nuns last December.

Joe and Rick Mears are the only sports figures I know of that turn signing an autograph or taking a picture into being all about the fan who asked. Godspeed, Joe!
