#3100 - IOC 1983 Olympic Order Certificate Estimate: $750+

Uncommon Olympic Order certificate, 9 x 14, issued to Robert F. Osborne in 1983 with Olympic Rings and text in French, reading (translated): "Olympic Order, The International Olympic Committee has conferred the silver medal of the Olympic Order to Robert F. Osborne." Signed at the conclusion by International Olympic Committee President Juan Antonio Samaranch. In very good to fine condition, with a small tear to right edge and a crease to upper portion. Created in 1975, the Olympic Order is the highest accolade of the Olympic Movement and is awarded for particularly distinguished contributions to the Olympic Movement, with grades consisting of gold, silver, or bronze. Canada's Robert Osborne was one of 31 honored with a silver citation in 1983. Osborne was a University of British Columbia athlete, coach, and a founder of UBC’s School of Physical Education. He enrolled at UBC in 1930 and led the 1930-31 basketball team to UBC's first national championship. In 1936, Osborne played on the Canadian Olympic basketball team that earned a silver medal in the Berlin Olympics.
