    1980 Moscow Olympics Welterweight Boxing Gold Medal Won by Andrés Aldama.
    . This marvelous symbol of international athletic competition's highest achievement was awarded to the Cuban Welterweight for his four to one victory over Ugandan John Mugabi in the final match of the Moscow Games. Aldama bulked up slightly from his 1976 appearance in the Gold Medal bout of the 1976 Montreal Games, where he was defeated by the great Sugar Ray Leonard. Aldama's Silver Medal from Montreal is likewise presented within this Signature Auction.

    The offered Gold features a laurel-wreathed Victory figure on the obverse, the logo for the Moscow Games on obverse, and the Cyrillic lettering for "Boxing" on the edge. Ribbon and clasp have been removed for display, and the medal exhibits a degree of handling wear that does nothing to dampen the enormous historical appeal. Sadly, due to the restrictive policies of the Castro government, this would prove to be the end of Aldama's visibility at the international level. Included is a period photo of Aldama wearing his medal on the flight back to Havana.
