Description

    1924 United States Olympics Team Signed Album with Approximately 300 Autographs. The American team crossed the Atlantic in the aptly named SS America to attend the 1924 Paris Games, and one passenger took this opportunity to collect as many autographs as he could. The presented booklet was intended to be used as stationery, each page perforated at the top for removal, but instead it was pressed into service as an autograph vessel. Typically the signatures appear twenty or more to a page, all neatly entered, usually followed by the signer's collegiate alma mater or hometown. Notables include "Father of Surfing" Duke Kahanamoku and Gertrude Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel.

    A heavy vertical fold runs the width of the booklet, to very minor distraction, and beyond general handling wear to the covers, the relic presents without flaws. It's the most comprehensive autograph compilation we've encountered from any edition of the Olympic Games, and absolute treasure for the advanced collector. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
