Rare early-career photos of Muhammad Ali, curated from a collection of more than 3,000 images, are now available to consumers for the first time from USA Today Sports in conjunction with the launch of the USA Today Sports e-store.
The new e-commerce site from the sports photography service offers digital reprints and images from the USA Today Sports archives.
The Ali images, licensed through Authentic Brands Group, are originally from the library of The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., the hometown newspaper of Ali and his family.
At the outset, the USA Today Sports Store will include the Ali collection as well as live-action photography from Major League Soccer, plus digital reprints of the front page of USA Today Sports going back through 1999. Additional collections and images from other sports will be added over time.
