Theft of Jersey Joe Walcott’s marker

A bronze marker honoring the legendary boxer Jersey Joe Walcott has been reported missing from the site of the old Campbell’s Field baseball stadium in Camden. Authorities believe thieves ripped the marker from a path that was a walk of fame honoring Walcott and other Camden County natives. Jersey Joe Walcott was inducted into the walk of fame at Campbell’s Field in August 2015. The inlet was placed in front of the stadium to honor the Merchantville native who won the world heavyweight title in 1951, becoming an unlikely champion. https://www.philly.com/news/new-jersey/jersey-joe-walcott-boxer-stolen-marker-campbells-field-demolition-camden-nj-20190207.html?fbclid=IwAR1Xw8-n_SynZpsYcEd_BL8w2lz77QTY798ZsBVTi04mX4lf9syKShbIqmg
