    Description

    Cassius Clay, Wilma Rudolph & Al Oerter Signed 1960 Olympic Program In the summer of 1960 the world held the 17th Olympic Games in Rome. There were a number of stars in this Olympics, but none greater than the trio that has signed this original 1960 Summer Olympic Games Program. Cassius Clay of Louisville, Kentucky emerged as one of the most exciting performers in the boxing division en route to winning a gold medal in the light heavyweight division. He has signed the front of this program boldly in ink, "Cassius Clay 19-60." Wilma Rudolph is one of the greatest track and field stars in the history of the sport. In the 1960 Rome Olympics she became the first American woman to win three gold medals in the sport, winning the 100 and 200 meter dashes and anchoring the winning 400 meter dash relay team. She has also signed this program in bold ink. Al Oerter may have been the greatest Olympian of all time. He is one of only two men to win gold medals in four consecutive Olympics including 1960. Oerter's speciality was the discus and he won those gold medals often defeating the current world record holder in the process. He has signed the cover of the program in bold ink. The program is in fine condition. No creases, with a tight binding and clean inside and out. This signed program is one of the best signed Olympic pieces to surface in recent years. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
