Except for big fights, the Ring's coverage of fights was pretty poor. Very short descriptions. Even AP or UPI next-day reports were better a lot of time.

Old Ring mags pop up on Ebay from time to time, so they are available for those who are looking for them.
Anything going back to the 1950s are not too hard to find.

The older ones are harder to find, but they too do turn up every once in a while.
Be warned though, that those tend to go for outrageous prices.
A bound volume for all the 1922 editions was up for sale recently - I think it sold for just over $5000.

A few years ago I was offered complete sets of The Ring 1922-1930.
The seller's asking price was $25,000.
No thanks.


From what I'm told there are only 14 complete collections of The Ring in the world.
One of them belonged to Hank Kaplan, who donated his entire library to the Brooklyn Library upon his death a few years ago.
I believe his library was valued at more than 2 million dollars, so you can imagine the sheer size of it.

Brooklyn Library has had several people working full days for a couple of years, just going through and indexing it.
It only opened to the public a couple of months ago.

My Ring collection is complete from 1928.
A couple of the volumes in my collection were previously owned by Jim Jacobs.
I think that is pretty cool.

It's very cool that the Brooklyn Library is digitizing Mr. Kaplan's collection for internet usage by researchers.

No idea - I read it when I clicked the link in the previous post.

It'd sure be great if it was free access for everybody.
