    Description

    1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics Torch with Torchbearer Uniform & More. It was an Olympics best remembered for Carl Lewis' four gold medals to match Jesse Owens and Mary Lou Retton's flawless vault in women's gymnastics. Presented is one of the torches that carried the Olympic flame from its home in Athens to the City of Angels. Highly collectible artifact exhibits minor flame darkening but no denting of the crown of the torch. Some wear is evident on the leather handle and bottom brass fittings, but presents well and continues to symbolize the best of athletic competition and international brotherhood. Also here is the torch's sleeve and operating manual, torchbearers' full uniform (t-shirt, shorts and even socks), letter from the L.A.O.O.C. Torch Relay Foundation & LA.O.O.C. certificate (with mailer) sent to the torchbearer, photographs (two) of the torch and runner in action, newspapers from Rancho Santa Fe, California that use the photographs in their coverage, and other related items. Certainly the most well-documented relay torch we've encountered to date.
