Description"Cassius Clay" toothbrush prototype. Additional examples in 2010.011.1" Interesting item. The "Cassius Clay against Mr. Tooth Decay" was an album created for children in 1976. The other prototype example in the collection has the name "Ali" imprinted onto the boxing glove handle. In the late 1970's, Herbert Muhammad Enterprises created branded "Muhammad Ali" items for children. One such item was a package of toothbrushes; however, they do not resemble the prototype. Both items do not seem to have direct relation.
