Description

    1980 Greg Louganis Moscow Olympics Memorabilia Lot. Cold War relics survive as a sad reminder that even the Olympic Games are not immune to politics. The United States was one of twenty-nine countries to boycott the 1980 Moscow Games in protest of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, denying the twenty year old Louganis, a favorite for two Golds, his second taste of Olympic competition. Presented are four pieces issued in advance of the international competition: 1) Levi Strauss Resistol cowboy hat. Tag inside reads, in part, "W92C Olympiad, 7 1/8." Olympic emblem on crown. Some minor staining. Original box included. 2) Leather belt with "1980 Olympic Team" buckle, size 32. 3) Necktie tagged "Manufactured under licensee by the 1980 Olympic Committee." NRMT. 4) Ceramic figurine (6" tall) of the Moscow Olympics mascot bear. NRMT. 5) 1980 U.S. Olympic Diving Trials belt buckle. NRMT. 6) Timex wristwatch marked "1980 United States Olympic Team" on the face. NRMT condition, needs battery but likely still operational.
