    Description

    1960 Hemmets Journal Panel Ljunggren/Rudolph/Clay/Nielsen #6 SGC Authentic. The 1960 Olympic Games were held in Rome, Italy. The event became the first international showcase for a young pugilist named Cassius Clay, who, of course, went on to even greater heights as Muhammad Ali. The Swedish publication Hemmets Journal released an issue of trading cards that commemorated the top Olympic athletes that were meant to be housed in a binder. This panel was a part of the series; the holes in the margin are original to the piece, enabling it to fit it into the binder. The athletes depicted include: Swedish speed walker, John Ljunggren, American track and field athlete, Wilma Rudolph; American boxer, Cassius Clay; and Danish footballer, Harald Nielsen. The Clay card is considered to be one of the earliest cards to depict the gold medalist and future heavyweight champ. It has been graded SGC Authentic.
