Description


Collection of eight ticket stubs from the famous 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin for each day from August 2-9, ranging in size from 4 x 2.75 to 5.5 x 2.75, for admission to the "Leichtathletik [Athletics/Track and Field]" events at the Olympic Stadium. These include all four days on which Jesse Owens won a gold medal: August 3 for the 100m sprint; August 4 for the long jump; August 5 for the 200m sprint; and August 9 for the 4x100 sprint relay. In overall fine condition, with paper loss to top right of the largest ticket. The historic importance of Owens's success at the Olympics is unrivaled: no athlete is as closely identified with an Olympic Games as Jesse Owens is with Berlin 1936, and his four gold medals helped dispel Hitler's notion of Aryan supremacy on his 'home turf.' It's exceptionally rare to have a complete set of Berlin track and field tickets.
