Estimate: $600.00 +

Vintage color 5.5 x 3.5 German postcard depicting the flags of the countries competing in the Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics, signed on the reverse in black ink, "Jesse Owens, U.S.A.," "Ken Carpenter, USA," "Fritz Pollard, Jr., U.S.A, 110 m. hurdles," "Mack Robinson, 200 meters, U.S.A.," and "Dave Albritton." In very good condition, with a tape-reinforced crease to the right side, and light scattered staining. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.

A phenomenal cast of signatures representing five of America’s top competitors in the highly publicized athletic events. Owens became a hero for the ages with his legendary performance at the Games, amassing a total of four gold medals in the 100 m, 200 m, long jump, and 4x100 m relay. Robinson, the older brother of baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, placed second in the 200 m; Carpenter brought home gold in the discus; Pollard earned the bronze in the 110 m hurdles; and Albritton took the silver in the high jump.
