    Description

    1936 Jesse Owens Signed Government Postcard Just weeks before the heroic track and field star issued a figurative slap in the face to Adolf Hitler and his theories of Aryan supremacy at the Berlin Summer Games, Owens penned this brief greeting, "Sincerely, Jesse Owens," to an autograph-seeking fan. Postmarked June 16, 1936 from Columbus, Ohio, where Owens was a standout star on the Ohio State University track team, this card represents one of the most unique and appealing signatures from this great figure of twentieth century sports ever to reach the auction block. Signature is 10/10; postcard is lightly and evenly toned, but undamaged. LOA's James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
