    Jesse Owens Signed Track Shoe. One of the truly inspiring stories of twentieth century athletics, Jesse Owens rose from an impoverished child in the Jim Crow South to become the greatest name in track and field, figuratively slapping the face of one of the greatest villains in world history at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. His perfect blue ink inscription, "My Best Always, Jesse Owens," finds the ideal home on a vintage track shoe much like the ones worn by Owens during his reign. While Owens autographs are tough on any media, to find such a special display piece as this is a particularly rare treat. LOA from PSA/DNA.
