    Description

    1988 Summer Olympics Torch, Seoul. Scandal rocked this XXIVth Olympiad, with Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson losing his Gold Medal after a world record performance in the 100 meter sprint after a drug test turned up evidence of steroid usage. And Greg Louganis recovered to take a Gold Medal in diving after a scary injury in the preliminary rounds. The torch crafted for those Games boasts NRMT-MT condition to flatter its stunning design, which pays tribute to the most celebrated themes of Asian art. A top-tier specimen of one of the most beautiful Olympic torches in the hobby.
