    Description

    1960 Rome Olympics Postcard Signed by Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) & Jesse Owens. Two of the top Olympians and racial pioneers in American sports history are linked in flawless black ink on the back of this postcard from the Rome Games, where the younger of the two earned his Gold Medal. A few others join this iconic pair, one of the autographs partially lost by a tear at the edge. This is almost certainly the only surviving relic bearing the signatures of Clay and Owens, elevating it to the peak of desirability. Postcard exhibits considerable wear, but our catalog imagery should convey that the all-important duo is unaffected. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
