    Description

    1936 Jesse Owens Handwritten & Signed Postcard Sent from Berlin During the Olympic Games. Owens' autograph is quite readily available within the hobby, but this is no ordinary Owens signed relic. This incredible postcard pictures Owens racing in Berlin on obverse, and bears a message and signature from him on reverse that reads, "Would like to visit the wonderful city of Vienna, Jesse Owens." The postcard was mailed from Berlin during the Games and bears the unique German postmarks substantiating this extraordinary provenance. It's arguably the most significant signed Owens piece in the hobby. Writing is 9/10. Postcard EX. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
